Disable post-processing

Post by lamaxx » December 19th, 2019, 3:34 pm

I have noticed that post-processing seems to have a tremendous negative impact on download speed - the same download that was going at 30MB/s slows down to 1 or 2 MB/s when another file is post-processing - it would be nice to have the option to disable post-processing altogether, and deal with it later - in fact, it would be nice to have the option to disable post-processing altogether, and handle it separately - that's what I was doing with NZBget, that is downloading the rars and then repairing/unraring the files with a separate utility - but I recently switched to SABnzbd, and I have not been able to find a setting (at least not an obvious one) that would enable me to do just that. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,
lamaxx

It's possible to disable postproc altogether by setting 'processing' for the (default) category to download only. The other (and way nicer unless you have too much free time) option to avoid your issue is to use 'pause downloading during post-processing' under switches.

I would actually suggest "Pause download during post-processing" option, so automation can do the trick :)
