Question Transmission CLI process management


I am using transmission-cli to download torrents on my server using the following:

Code:
transmission-cli -w /srv/samba/share/ /home/jayel/torrents/<torrent file> & > /dev/null
This is working great as I can close down my ssh session and the process continues after log out. Only problem is when I log in again I can't tell how far along the torrent is and can't use fg to bring the process to the foreground as there are no stored jobs anymore.

Any ideas as how I can best resolve this?

Hello,

I would use screen for something like this. http://linuxmanpages.com/man1/screen.1.php

Cheers,

Josh

Wow, that looks like a fairly powerful terminal program. Had a quick look but can you tell me, will the created screens stay active once the SSH session is closed and easily available once reconnected?

Yes, just don't fully kill them, and you can exit out of them, and reconnect to them when needed.
