Periodically pause and resume Transmission torrents on TrueNAS

Unless you have great internet bandwidth you probably don’t want to leech and seed your 100 torrents during the day. You usually want them to seed during the night and then pause in the morning. Let’s do this on our TrueNAS box.

  1.  Open up your jails, select transmission and fire up the shell.
  2. If you dislike vi as default editor, set it to ee by running the following command:
    setenv EDITOR /usr/bin/ee
    To make this choice persistent, open up .cshrc and add the command on the bottom.
  3. transmission-remote is not installed by default so we install it
    pkg install transmission-utils
  4. Run
    crontab -e
    and write the following lines:

    0 1 * * * /usr/local/bin/transmission-remote localhost:9091 --auth=YOUR_TRANSMISSION_USER:YOUR_TRANSMISSION_PASSWORD -tall --start
    0 7 * * * /usr/local/bin/transmission-remote localhost:9091 --auth=YOUR_TRANSMISSION_USER:YOUR_TRANSMISSION_PASSWORD -tall --stop

    Change the username and password with the ones you use to access Transmission WebUI. The example will start all torrents at 1AM and stop them at 7AM.
