Please make yourself aware of the Ultra.cc Fair Usage Policy. Directly pointing any cloud storage directory using Rclone will create extreme strain on your slot's disk and WILL cause a 24-hour ban on accessing your cloud storage repeatedly. It is YOUR responsibility to ensure usage is within acceptable limits. Ignorance is not an excuse.
If you are on an HDD plan, you should be mindful not to have multiple simultaneous downloads active as it will cause high disk IO utilization, and negatively affect your disk neighbors. There is no set limit on how many active downloads you can have, though depending on the download speeds, we recommend 1-3 at the most. To monitor the disk IO utilization, see this link: https://docs.ultra.cc/link/235#bkmrk-how-to-check-high-di

Enable Public Torrent Seeding (Optional)
- Public torrents are stopped after download by default to avoid HDD IO resource abuse and inadvertent usage of upload traffic. You can easily enable public torrent seeding with the instructions given below.
- Login to your service via SSH. How to connect to your Ultra.cc slot via SSH
- Execute the following SSH command:
app-transmission restart --remove-pubscript
- That's it.
- Note that changing the password of the torrent client or re-installing it will disable public torrent seeding again.
If you have an Ultra.cc service with HDD instead of NVME, you need to be mindful of your disk neighbors and not hammer the disk with high IO utilization. See this guide for more information on how to check your disk IO utilization.
One way to mitigate this is to limit the amount of active downloads in your torrent client. Below you will find instructions on how to do this for Transmission.
- Connect to your Ultra.cc service via SSH
- Once connected, execute the following command:
- Then, execute:
- Make sure
download-queue-enabledis set to
true, and set
download-queue-sizeto the desired value.
"download-queue-enabled": true, "download-queue-size": 2,
- Once you have edited the values, press
ENTERto save and exit.
app-transmission restartto reload and apply the config file.
