Nothing odd about my install AFAIK.  *Seems* to be working OK otherwise

its nothing to worry about guys, i did think i had this sorted but looks like it needs a bit more fiddling, i will sort it, it only affects this one plugin and of course does NOT affect vpn functionality in any way.

Just dropping by to say that containers have been stable for 3 days already. Buttery smooth
I initially didn't get any disk space back and then I remembered to manually delete the Flood folder created by previous versions :D.
Great stuff getting rid of Google and OpenDNS by the way; never know when DNS leaks will happen. Despite some Reddit hate for Cloudfare I never had a problem with 1.1.1.1.

 

Will send you some extra beer your way soon :).

Hello,

 

I have found another solution, for me is the best solution if you use proxmox and lxc.

I have a lot of .meta files in my download directory. Is it safe to delete them?

 

If it is relevant, I usually use a magnet file to start a download, and I notice that the download starts with a META file before switching to the actual file. I currently have no such META files downloading, but there are still a lot of .meta files in the download directory.

yes, the meta files are basically magnets, these will be loaded and converted to torrent files, the meta files should then be deleted, but its possible cleanup hasnt happened for some of these files so manual deletion is fine.

Thanks. I didn't realise that's what happened with magnets; and now I see the torrent files are in the session folder.

Im trying to download something with radarr right now and all im getting it .meta files and in rtorrent they are showing as "Tracker: [DHT search unsuccessful.]" any ideas?

 

EDIT

Well in case anyone is wondering if you are checking a  torrent  magnets wont change from meta to torrents until its done...  Im checking a 2.1Tb torrent so I have a bunch of .meta files.  Pausing the checking and they all converted to torrents.

I have been having issues with rtorrentvpn, and maybe with unraid, I can't get the web ui for rtorrent to load reliably, and when it does load it only connects briefly.  My unraid issues, which I'm mentioning in case it's related, is that pages load slowly, settings change slowly, I give up waiting and relaod whichever page and sometimes the changes took, sometimes they didn't.  When I try to initiate a shutdown or restart I am used to seeing a new page with a countdown, I'm not seeing that anymore. 

 

Here's some maybe pertinent backstory.  This is my second current unraid box using leftovers from upgrades, built because the first box is out of bays and running out of space.  I started it with drives pre-cleared 3 times, with encrytped xfs, and initially did not set up a parity drive.  With the array running, I started to get Current pending sectors on one of the drives in the array.  I waited for a drive that was pre-clearing at the time to finish and then had it build parity with that drive, the drive with errors, and 2 others.  Then I replaced the drive with errors and let it rebuild.  This morning I added a cache drive and set things up to use it, including app data (preferred) and my download directory (yes).  I also ran and xfs check of the drive that replaced the drive with errors, and a btrfs check on the cache drive.  I had been using a copy of the openvpn folder from my other box which is running the same container successfully, I just tried overwriting the contents with a fresh download from PIA and that doesn't seem to have made a difference.

 

Thank you for any help, log file is attached.

Might be useful to have diagnostics also since your Unraid problems might be the cause of your docker problems.

rtorrent has been much better at connecting to the web ui since I ungraded to 6.7.1 official from 6.7.1 rc2.  It is still timing out frequently though.

I see there are option to use PIA and AIR. If I want to use torguard, do I just set it to custom, add username:password and openvpn files like I normaly do using PIA? Or is there a different approach to get torguard working with rtorrentvpn?

 

Any reason not to choose torguard? With 50% off it is a really nice offer so I am considering them over PIA now that my subscription runs out.

check they allow port forwarding and are ok with torrent traffic, if not then they wont be a good choice.

A brief google suggests that port forwarding necessary for torrents is going to be a manually configured and a user managed deal, where it's automatic with the scripts binhex set up for PIA. So, if the savings is enough to make up for your time setting it up and making it work, fine.

I did set it up manually when using Airvpn. If it is just as easy and a one time thing I dont mind doing it manually :) Need to look into it before deciding.

One more thing. I see that my container is using both google and opendns. Should I remove them and use the ones in the pia/air excampel on github?

As part of my ongoing tightening of all things vpn i decided to remove google and opendns name servers from the default list, as both support EDNS Client Subnet (ip tracking via dns in short) so recommend the now current name servers as shown in the readme.md.

so guys, im having trouble with speeds after latest update.

At the moment im having maximum of 11 MiB download whatever I do... Before i could almost top my 1gb/s line. I tried redownloading some very seeded torrents and change the ammount active (from 1 to 5) and whatever i do, the download speed stays the same, about 11MiB.

 

 

This is my rtorrent.rc. Should I change something? Just to be sure its a container problem, is there an easy way to speedtest inside the container? Thank you

 

(If someone could edit my post to put my rtorrent.rc inside a text box i would appreciate it, as i dont know how to do it)

Have you done a speedtest in general? Are you sure you don't have a networking problem with your server? That speed seems similar to an ethernet connection that has degraded to 100 instead of 1000.

Yes, as i said, i was reaching upwards of 50MiB before the update, meaning, the saerver is capable of 1gb/s. thats why i think this is so strange and am asking is theres an easy way to speedtest inside a container

Again, thank you for you answer, as it turns out, you were right, my router reverted back to stock config and thought the proxmox server was 100mb. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction

I see there is a lot of .torrent files in \rutorrent\share\users\admin\torrents

 

Can I delete these without creating any problems for files being seeded? Why are some torrents stored in this folder in addition to the session folder?

I got a weird issue and i can't find a way to solve this,
i got about 600+ torrents running, but 102 of those torrents always need to rehash when rtorrentvpn restarts.

Always the same 102 torrents (almost 3TB), after the rehash they all pass.

Different trackers even torrents that i cross seed, on one tracker they need to rehash on the other not.
I tried the following:

- removing them and re-adding them manually (delete + data),
- remove them and add them by doing a manaul search in Radarr/Sonarr so that Radarr/Sonarr adds it.

- deleted the .resume file and waited till the session got saved and recreated the .resume file.

- checked if the torrents with the issue are on the same drive but they aren't.

 

Any one got ideas what else this could be or what i could try to fix this issue of mine ?

It's got to be storage related, especially if it's always the same ones check the path for the ones that recheck against the ones that don't
