I know there are a few transmission management scripts floating out there, but I am re-writing my current script to be cleaner and leaner. I will post a link here once I am finished and will also be releasing an RSS feed script that can be used to feed transmission links (for a small donation of course).
I currently have it working just fine on my box, both management and RSS, I am just cleaning it up at this stage. Below is a functionality list for the management script.
- Seed up to limit
- Limit number of active torrents
- Remove finished seeds
- Restart transmission if needed to keep it active
- More to come….
Get the latest version [HERE].
If you run into an issue then please either reply here or PM me and I'll get back to you.
You will need to add an entry into your crontab to fire it off however often you like. 15 minutes seems to be a resonable number.
sudo nano -w /etc/crontab/root
*/15 * * * * nice -n 18 /usr/bin/checktransmission > /var/log/checktransmission.log
Once I have this tested by a few people I will move on to the RSS bit.
