Adding prioritity for users

Post by MrZoidberg » 2003-01-17 06:26

One thing that I would like to see in DC++ is the ability to
set priority to users. What I mean is when I get in to a user
that has rare files that I want and hardly ever any slots open,
I set his priority to "high" and when i get in, DC uses all possible
bandwidth for getting his files and the rest of the bandwidth
is used for the "default" priority downloads.

Basically if a high priority user can send at 600kb/s and you are
using all your bandwidth, then all your other downloads slow down
in favour of the high priority user, so you download att 600kb/s
from him.

hmmm I hope I made myself clear with this :)
I could not find this requested in the tracker so.....
I hope you give it some thought, I would REALLY love this feature

thanks a lot for the BEST program in the world....

again we have the trouble to find what is your max download bandwith...
and the max upload bandwithof the one you are connected... otherwise, you could slow down a download thinking the other one will go faster but if he is at max upload, you will lose total bandwith!
