Locators are processes with the only job of locate more sources for your downloads, in
a way that they don't stop downloading... Locators creates a new socket connection
with the daemon, it send the locate request and waits for results (it's just like
performing a normal search using the realm 'hash'), of course everything is handled
automatically in the background, so that you can continue using GiFTMui without
problems at all. Follow are the description for the settings:
- - Launch Automatically
Locators will be automatically launched once a download reaches Zero sources.
- - Handle Queue
When Locators are launched automatically, there could be the case where several of them
are launched very quicly causing only the first instance to take effect - by that reason,
from GiFTMui 2.0 (build #148) the avility to add them in a queue have been added, so that
if e.g. you have 20 downloads and all of them reaches Zero sources, while locators are enabled,
only the first request is handled in real-time being the rest queued to be automatically launched
as well on timeout or end of results for the running instance.
- - Allow multiples
This option is currently unavailable...
- - Timeout
Specifies the maximum time-life a Locator is keep running.
- - Inspector
The Inspector is an automated way of launching Locators, if it's Activated it will be launched
given the interval value and it will check your list of downloads, unless Check all is enabled it will
launch a Locator for transfers without sources, else (when Check all is enabled) it will launch
a Locator for all of your downloads. -
If you want to abort a running Inspector you'll have to "re-launch" it from the Network menu.
Locators are available for registered users only!
