This is my torrent server on the same 8Gb SD card.

/dev/mmcblk0p1    7458672    1058648   6297556  15% /

/dev/sdb1      7752457508 6878909040 482830824  94% /ext

 

I saw with lsblk, that sda1 has no mountpoint... that could be the reason. I will check it out.

Hello Igor,

since years i seed Armbian torrents but i noticed that i'm running out of space.
My hdd was 248GB till now...

 

Looking for further information and saw in the first post is written 512GB.

Maybe you can add a big ">NOTE!< since Version 20.05.xx you need 512GB free space".

 

Also after you installed transmission by ->Software ->Softy ->Transmission you get asked to seed Armbian torrents.

Here a screen:

 

80GB_Torrent_message.png.d5b0108ba9715af5cf11dfd4a508e7b4.png

 

You have to change the number from 80GB to 512GB.

 

Just my thinking about this..

:lol: Yeah that number is a bit outdated. But you can see how much the project has grown over the years.

Hello there,

I'm trying to adapt the cron script to deluged and I came out with this

#!/bin/bash
#
# armbian torrents auto update
#
# download latest torrent pack
TEMP_DIR=$(mktemp -d || exit 1)
chmod 700 ${TEMP_DIR}
trap "rm -rf \"${TEMP_DIR}\" ; exit 0" 0 1 2 3 15
wget -qO- -O ${TEMP_DIR}/armbian-torrents.zip https://dl.armbian.com/torrent/all-torrents.zip
# test zip for corruption
unzip -t ${TEMP_DIR}/armbian-torrents.zip >/dev/null 2>&1
[[ $? -ne 0 ]] && echo "Error in zip" && exit
# extract zip
unzip -o ${TEMP_DIR}/armbian-torrents.zip -d ${TEMP_DIR}/torrent-tmp >/dev/null 2>&1
# create list of current active torrents
deluge-console 'info' | sed '1d; $d' > ${TEMP_DIR}/torrent-tmp/active.torrents
# loop and add/update torrent files
for f in ${TEMP_DIR}/torrent-tmp/*.torrent; do
        deluge-console "add ${f}" > /dev/null 2>&1
        # remove added from the list
        pattern="${f//.torrent}"; pattern="${pattern##*/}";
        sed -i "/$pattern/d" ${TEMP_DIR}/torrent-tmp/active.torrents
done
# remove old armbian torrents
while read i; do
        [[ $i == *Armbian_* || $i == *gcc-linaro-* || $i == *tar.lz4 ]] && 
        deluge-console "rm $(echo "$i" | awk '{print $1}';) --remove_data"
done < ${TEMP_DIR}/torrent-tmp/active.torrents

I'm not sure with the "active.torrents" part because i don't have transmission and i don't know how the informations from the "-l" are listed.

For now the adding part is working and the "active.torrents" file is written!

There was an issue with the torrent network which lead into adding torrents to the queue that were no longer existing. This has been fixed. If you have setup your transmission-daemon with the update script mentioned at the first post you will receive the fix automatically or already might have.

Hello, what's the disk space needed to seed the torrents?

 

On a side note, would creating a repository mirror also help?

Hi,

I would also be interested in finding out what it would take to host a local repository mirror. Over the past few weeks I did try to rsync the repo to local storage, but I'm not sure if that will affect anything on the 'other' side. Had to break off the rsync as it appeared to sync extremely slow.

Groetjes,

The size requirements have been updated.

 

Since we now share images with various desktop environments as well the size of all torrents have now grown to around 500GB.

To become future-proof again the free space requirement has been raised to 1TB.

 

For those who did not notice yet. It became rather simple to become an Armbian http/s mirror as well if you do not like torrent stuff: https://github.com/armbian/mirror
