Always Seeing Tracker Errors and No Seeders

Post by gw1500se »

I am a new deluge user and when I have torrents to download there are never any seeders. I suspect it may be related to tracker errors and my VPN. Here is the output from 'deluge-console info':

Is the problem with the trackers the reason I am not seeing any seeders? Why am I always getting tracker errors? The first 2 torrents are being downloaded (timeout errors) and the 3rd torrent is supposed to be seeding (operation canceled). TIA.

Hi

The tracker keeps the list of peers and progress. If no update can be sent/retrieved from it Deluge is nit aware about the number of seeder.
Considering your server/network out of the problem the tracker seems overloaded. You may check the forum (if existing) to confirm the tracker address hasn't changed (httpS for example).

Thanks for the reply. I do have the correct tracker URLs. However, I have multiple trackers specified but Deluge does not seem to cycle through them. I moved openbittorrent to the bottom of the list and now it seems to be using just the tracker now at the top of the list. Instead of getting a timeout error it appears to be working (announce sent) but I still have no seeders. Meanwhile the torrent web site shows hundreds of seeders.

You could try the LtConfig plugin and enable the options "announce_to_all_tiers" and "announce_to_all_trackers". Those are the default settings for clients like uTorrent, but they are not enabled with deluge because they do not follow the bit torrent specs correctly.

It will force deluge to attempt to contact every single tracker associated with a torrent. The "correct" way is more of a try one at a time approach and stop when you reach one.

Thanks. I installed the plugin and set those options. I can now see it cycling though the trackers. However, I am still getting no seeders. I do see that most of the time I get torrent aborted errors. What does that mean?

The solution provided helps with multiple trackers cycling and advertising them all. It doesn't solve a tracker issue that needs to be deal separately.
(remove the wrong tracker of check for help on the forum if existing).

I still want to know what torrent aborted means. There must be some reason.
