I seed a large number of low activity torrents, so I need a lot of files
at the same time. I've experienced instability with rtorrent when I get
to the limit.
I've noticed a few different behaviors. If the limit in rtorrent.rc is
low, like 256,
it'll crash really quickly. If the limit is large, like 4096, it's
mostly stable until I
close rtorrent, then it crashes. If the limit is very high, above the
rtorrent is quite stable, it just keep the torrents it can't open as
When rtorrent crashes, it messes up my terminal so I don't have any output
for you, is there a way to redirect that output?
I'm running 0.11.9/0.79 on Debian Sid. I tried updateing to 0.12.2/0.82 but
for some reason it didn't recognize all of the torrents I was seeding,
some of them with blank files. That's probably connected hitting the
limit too, I think.
Should I just crank the limit way up to something like 65335 and hope
Is that going to be a problem for the rest of my system? I'd appreciate
