De-prioritizing slow downloads

Post by hypersucker »

Is there a way to tell SABnzbd to skip - or move to the end of queue - files/nzb/jobs that download under a certain threshold? Right now, queues of hundreds of files that could download at 100MB/s and finish quickly are being held up by files that download at 300KB/s (probably deleted on most servers and un-finishable anyways).

Are you on SABnzbd 2.3.9?
There is no specific setting for this, but it should cancel failing downloads a bit quicker.
