The file also contains the following attribute types:
- platform specific locations and settings.
- source installation settings
Download a file via the BitTorrent protocol. The usage semantics are like that of the existing file and remote_file resources. This allows very fast downloads for files that are part of large BitTorrent swarms. The Ubuntu 10.04 LTS ISO (around 700MB) downloads in about 50 seconds.
- :create: Download a file via the BitTorrent protocol
- path: name attribute. the path to the file
- torrent: torrent file of the swarm to join. can either be a url or local file path
- blocking: should the file be downloaded in a blocking way? If
trueChef will download the file in a single Chef run, if
falseChef will check for a completed download during each Chef run until the download is complete. default is
- continue_seeding: should the file continue to be seeded to the swarm after download? default is
- owner: The owner for the file
- group: The group owner of the file (string or id)
- rpc_host: the address of the Transmission RPC host to connect to. default is
- rpc_port: the port of the Transmission RPC host to connect to. default is
- rpc_username: the username of the Transmission RPC account. default is
- rpc_password: the password of the Transmission RPC account . should probably be
node['transmission']['rpc_password']which by default is a secure password generated for this node.
Download the lucid ISO

Continue seeding after download
transmission_torrent_file "/home/ubuntu/ubuntu.iso" do torrent "http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/ubuntu-10.04.1-server-i386.iso.torrent" owner 'ubuntu' group 'ubuntu' continue_seeding true rpc_username node['transmission']['rpc_username'] rpc_password node['transmission']['rpc_password'] action :create end
