Thank you for the programm code. Executing it, verified that my swap is working.
Mem: 513752k total, 510520k used, 3232k free, 88k buffers
Swap: 1005528k total, 172208k used, 833320k free, 3584k cached
I was hoping to use the swap partition to extend the memory that transmissionbt can use. Especially when downloading new files, probably just before completion neither the webui nor the transmission-remote of the transmission-daemon is responding to queries. Looking at the plug's memory it showed that it was filled up whereas the cpu had only 15% load.
Does this indicate that I have a bad build of transmission 1.75?
It looks to me like you are filling your memory with cached data, and not program memory, so the kernel has no need to move anything to swap.
So basically the downloaded data is put into memory before writing it to the sd card? Is there a way of avoiding a situation as i described above?
