RTORRENT: causing alot of disk io:
i have tried setting:
receive_buffer_size = 1073741824 (1gb)
send_buffer_size = 1073741824 (1gb)
i have 4gb memory
to allow the hard drive to spin down during dowloads, but even when downloadin a 300mb file, the file isnt being downloaded to a buffer, its getting writed to the hard drive straight away,
when monitoring iotop , i get a "disk write" for rtorrent at the speed im downloading at.
idealy i would like my hard drive to spend alot of time span down. but rtorrent is the only thing that is keeping it awake.
any rtorrent flags/settings any one can recommend me that will reduce disk io?
