#2471 new patch

[GTKUI] Add Support for setting rate limit utp

Reported by: Doadin Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 2.x
Component: GTK UI Version: develop
Keywords: Cc:


Pretty self explanatory. New in 0.16+ is utp and the ability to choose whether or not to rate limit utp. Since 1.4.0 is mostlikely to use 0.16 or higher this prefference should be exposed to the user. As is the case in most updated torrent clients.

Not sure if that second part is right.

comment:2 by Doadin, 10 years ago

Its in 2 parts yes sorry but it is all good now. Should be ready to merge.

If this is available through the ltconfig plugin then it's unlikely to be added.

I am not sure why you would want utp to ignore the global rate limit?

comment:5 by Doadin, 10 years ago

I think its because of how utp works...its more designed to be less strenuous on the network so some people might not mind utp going nuts wheres other connections more likely you wouldnt want going crazy cause it could cause all kinds of network congestion.

To me the same thing could be said about ip overhead, why not include that? If you want only x amount of bandwidth to be used then why chose to let anything be ignored? Yet in all torrent client not just libtorrent based they all have both available as options. I do chose to ignore overhead but thats just because i dont want to hurt my speed by say setting a too low upload rate and then it it hurts my download rate because it doesnt have enough upload to communicate or something.

IMO Id like deluge to be up-to-date and as feature filled as far as options available in 100% of all the other clients. I think that most clients dont have very much that is too crazy to add by default and to me a user should be able to download any number of torrent clients and leave default and be able to do in deluge what they can in all the others out-of-the-box. And by just adding these two options i have proposed i believe that gets achieved.
