How do I access Deluge?

Deluge will be available from your dashboard (https://<username>>), or directly, at https://<username>

How do I use it?

Can I use public trackers?

Yes. To avoid abuse, all our VPN clients require you bring your own VPN credentials, which are then attached to your app pod - the torrent client won't start unless the VPN is connected. Thus, you can use public or private trackers.

If you don't already have a VPN, we've found Private Internet Access (PIA) to work very well - including automated port-forwarding.

What's the password for Deluge?

The default credentials are:

  • password: deluge

See here for details re connecting with your other apps.

I can't connect my Arr apps to Deluge

Deluge requires the "Label" plugin for compatibilty with Arr, which is already enabled on our default Deluge config.

Using ephemeral /tmp

Deluge can be configured to download torrents to one location, and then move them to another location upon completion. This can alleviate disk I/O constraints during the initial download process, speeding up the overall download and reducing resource usage.

Our Deluge pods are provisioned with a 1TB, HDD-backed, ephemeral /tmp volume. Ephemeral volumes only exist for as long as the pod is running, and so while unsuitable for long-term storage (because they are recreated upon restart), they are ideal for temporary, I/O-heavy operations like torrenting, unpacking, uncompressing, etc.

To use the 1TB ephemeral /tmp volume with qBittorrent, configure Preferences -> Downloads -> Download to to /tmp, as illustrated below:

Using /tmp in Deluge

What happens if my pod restarts before a download is completed?

Then the contents of /tmp will be lost. Restarts will be infrequent, occurring at most once during the maintenance window. Provided you don't have any in-progress torrents when this happens, you won't be affected. This design won't suit users who download large torrent files with few seeders over several days, but it does offer considerable advantages to speeding up small, discrete downloads.

Use Deluge with MyAnonamouse (MaM)

MaM has particularly stringent rules regarding the source IP of your traffic. Since our torrent clients already require a VPN connection, we comply with the one-IP-per-account rule, but since VPN IP changes when the pod restarts, we've had to make some allowances for updating your "dynamic seedbox IP".

Here's a thread in the MaM support forum illustrating how to integrate ElfHosted apps with MaM.
