    I'm using shibby v114

    When I run transmission, and I tell it to download, say, 10 torrents at once, each being 10gb big, it crashes within minutes. Is this a completely normal reaction based on how many downloads I'm giving it?

    Shouldn't tranmission throttle itself so that It does not crash?

    I tried installing through ipkg and set the transmission binary to /opt/bin and it still crashes....

    Edit: tested it with 5 torrents, each 10gb, again, crash.

    Filesystem on drive is ext3, size is 4tb.

    I'm thinking it's a hardware problem, it was running on a belkin sharemax N300 router and now I'm running it on a N66u and no crashes, what was the limiting factor there? flash? ram?

    Mostly like ram. That is why you need to control the allocated peers per torrent and maximum peers global. In addition, you also control maximum simultaneous download.
