Ticket #1206 (new feature-request)
Ability to stop downloading and upload only
|Reported by:||Joe Fission||Owned by:|
In my situation, I was trying to set up the scheduler to basically turn off my downloads entirely and to just upload/seed only. For that, I set the download speed to "0" and the upload speed to "-1". However, upon doing so, downloads continued at full speed as if it were still set to "-1". When this didn't work within the scheduler plugin, I tried setting my global download speed in Deluge to "0" and the same result occurred... Deluge continued to download at full speed.
I realize forcing "0" to mean "stop" for any limit other than downloads would be unwanted (eg. allowing people to stop their uploads pretty much goes against the spirit of the bittorrent spec). Forcing a limit of "0" to mean "stop" for download speed only would allow the scheduler to be used to set periods of only uploading/seeding activity. At any rate, this may be useful to anyone trying to seed torrents or even to those trying to maintain their ratio with a private tracker.
