BitTorrent service stops by itself (crashes) - sunny_bg - 04-18-2008 08:49 PM
I'm using the latest firmware and apps. I have enabled/started only the smb server and torrent applications to run, all other servers are stopped.
The problem is, that from time to time, the torrent service just stops, and I have to go and start it from the setup menu. I can not detect any strict interval, sometimes it may run for few hours, other it will crash just in a few minutes.
The torrent files I was working with, have been downloaded OK, no problems with this. The crash occurs usually when the files are fully downloaded, and go in a seeding mode, but I have experienced a crash even with one-two torrents in download mode, and 2 in seeding.
I checked in the log file, and there is nothing about the crash. No entries at all, I see only the startup messages, and the occasional tracker timeout messages. After that there are no entries, until I start the service again.
In that regard - is there a way to start/stop services remotely (web interface), and not only by the remote control?

Just to confirm that I have experienced the same bug.

I have same problem and even more ... my PCH become completely not responding and I have to reboot it

I noticed for me is that if I remain on the web gui frontend that uploads to the PCH in the web browser on for too long, the PCH may hang. Since that torrent page refreshes every few seconds, I try to close that browser after I'm done uploading a torrent file. I also try leave the torrent section on the PCH if I'm not using it.

I have exactly the same problem, The torrent starts to download and after few minutes, the popcorn crashs and I have to restart it by removing the power cable. It happens also if I leave the the web gui frontend. I have the latest official firmware.

I do confirm the problem.
Let us try to understand what we have in common that can be the reason:
1) File system - I have ext3, but also tried ext2
2) HDD - I have internal WD5000 JB
3) IP configuration, I have manual with address 192.168.15.3, mask 255.255.255.0 and gate 192.168.15.1.
4) Network installation - NMT is installed behind Dlink DVG 1402S router, 8881 port is forwarded by router to NMT
5) Trackers - I tried four. Any torrent from any of them causes NMT to crash.
Please post your settings/conditions.

Same here, I was downloading from Vuze, I i think this is connected with bigger torrents(files). Downloading 10 files with sizes <100 MB went ok and seading after thatalso worked nice, but when i started download 600MB file it crashed somewhere in middle and I couldn't force it to continue.
ext2, old 80 GB WD, rest (ip,network config) ist not connected with problem.

NEW FIRMWARE DO NOT FIX THE PROBLEM!
I make all the test again with the new firmware, and the problem persist.
FS: ext2 and ext3
HD: 80 GB and 5 GB
Mode: Internal and USB too
Trackers: filelist, mininova, demonoid, etc
Router: D-Link DI-524

What kind of HDD do you have?
Is it also Western Digital?

Yes. One of my HD is a WD (80 GB).

same problem here, PCH hangs completely after downloading large torrents for a few minutes, requiring pulling the power cord to reset. once i've reset the pch a few times and resumed the download, ultimately retrieving the whole torrent, i am able to seed just fine. my setup:
- most current, 01-17 firmware and apps
- Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3750640A 750GB hard drive
- using a private tracker that allows BTPD (as far as I can tell)
- downloading rar'd 700MB files in chunks of ~14MB each
- on a very fast cable modem connection, maxes out at docsis 2.0 speeds around 37 mbit/s down
- ext2 file system, manual IP, setup behind a standard netgear router
