I have a 32GB flash drive storing all of my torrents connected to my Raspberry Pi. Seeding using transmisison-daemon works fine.
Downloading... is a very different story. If the file size is less than the RAM available (ex. 100MB), everything works fine. If the file is very large (ex. 4GB), the transmission web interface will stop loading, and there will be little to no memory available. Eventually transmission will error saying that there isn't enough free space.
I'm suspecting that my flash drive is being slow (because both USB and Ethernet share bandwidth?), and that write caching is at fault. Any ideas on how to fix this?
I've tried restricting the download speed to 1kBps, but this did not help.
