Title: Filetype Slot Allocation?
Post by: bilvihur on May 04, 2007, 03:23:05 pm
I share 2000+ MP3 files, 500+ MPG files, and 50+ AVI files. The AVI's are 10-100X larger than the rest, and take proportionally much longer to upload, so I would like to limit their allocation, while allowing the smaller files to process. Does anyone have any ideas? :?

You can reserve extra slots in mxmoniter and auto start all files under 6 mb (That's the highest mp3 I have... you may want to reduce it). You can get mxmoniter in the goodies section.
That's what I do... and works good as well, as if no one wants mp3s, then the bandwidth goes to the users who want .avi files...

Cheers :P

Yes, that seems to be working nicely. By autostarting files <60Mb, I can accomodate the music and video people without being bogged down by the AVI's. Thanks. :D

Also take care not to make wrong settings with mxmoniter.... it can be rather nasty if badly configured ;)

Cheers :P
