torrents disappear after reboot

Post by patafrom »

hello,

i am runing qbittorent on a ubuntu box on a proxmox server.

For differnt reason, i need to reboot my proxmox everyday at 9am.

The issue is when I reboot my torrents dissapear. I would like to keep them running to seed.

What is the right paramater to look after ?

thanks for the recommendations.

It looks like the Ubuntu VM is not shut down clean, but rather forcefully. Sooner or later you will see data loss.

Normally Proxmox should be grateful but I think it doesn't give enough time for qBittorrent and other apps to stop.
I would...
- set up cron in your Ubuntu VM to gracefully stop qBittorrent like 10 minutes before the 9am time.
- then even do a graceful shutdown inside your VM in crontab like 2 minutes before the 9am time.

And that should be enough hopefully. You can always increase the times.
