Ruby rtorrent controller

Finnaly i had time to work on the rtorrent controller.
it works, that’s all i can say everyone will have to test it and fix the various values to setup the network for each own best performances.

There are many costants that may be configured to solve problems you may encounter with the configuration. Everything should be clear in the comments but i’ll try to add  more comments anyway when i have time.

With the configuration in the distribution (made for myself for my 2M adsl) i can have my sister doing video chats and playing online without any lag problem and when everything is finihed rtorrent autmatically will raise his own bandwidth limits.

There is currently a drawback. Rtorrent versions prior of 0.8.1 have a memory leak regarding xmlrpc-rtorrent communications. This means that rtorrent is going to eat all your ram. I am using the program monit to monitor my own servers and it’s  just trivial with it to keep rtorrent in a sane memory usare buy restarting it everytime it goes too far. Otherwise even a cronjob will do the trick restarting rtorrent every 1 or 2 days.

You can find the link to the project in the code page or just here
