UnpackPauseQueue not pausing queue when there is an ongoing unpack process

Post by kevindd992002 » 16 Sep 2021, 14:08

So I have UnpackPauseQueue enabled, ParPauseQueue disabled, and PostStrategy to Balanced. When I download a lot of nzb's, it looks something like this:

So why is download queue not being paused when an unpacking process is ongoing? Is this a bug or something? I'm using LSIO's "latest" docker container.

@hugbug

I saw one of your replies stating that UnpackPauseQueue will only work when DirectUnpack is disabled. Is this true? If so, would it make sense to put this in any of the help tips in the GUI?

This is probably Direct Unpack continuing its job after the download was finished. UnpackPauseQueue is for post-processing whereas direct unpack is by definition performed parallel to downloading. You can disable it via option DirectUnpack.

And now it looks like the download queue is paused:

So sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't? Both screenshots are with DirectUnpack and UnpackPauseQueue enabled.

Ahhh, that makes sense. That's why it looked like sometimes it was working and sometimes it doesn't. What would be more recommended though, keep DirectUnpack enabled or not? This question is assuming I have all download clients (nzbget and deluge) and *arrs on a Synology 1817+ NAS. Would you go far as saying that it would also be beneficial to enable ParPauseQueue?
