Speed Percentage by Priority?

Post by cmg » November 19th, 2017, 3:02 pm

I was wondering if there could be something implemented to set a speed percentage by priority, or maybe an override of the global setting by priority.

The idea would be something like my low priority stuff can maybe download at 10%, but if something come in as high or force it would go to 100% for just that item.

I tend to have a lot of items in the queue and don't want sab to take all the bandwidth normally, but when something important gets queued then have it go full throttle.

+1 for this but I'd make it a little simpler.

I think it's been mentioned before that speed limit for individual items is near impossible to implement.

How about if we could specify a speed percentage based on highest priority item in the queue.

For example:
Low - 10%
Normal - 50%
High - 100%

So if there are only low priority items in the queue it will throttle to 10%

But if something gets added as normal queue will go to 50%, and if it's high to 100%

When the normal/high item is finished the conditions for normal/high wouldn't be met so the speed would go back to low - 10%.

Personally I have a large queue of low items that I know will eventually download but don't want them impacting my usage. But if I add something manually, or Sonarr grabs a new episode I want it downloaded quicker.

Apologies if I haven't explained this very well :)
