It would be great to be able to specify (both via configuration file and command line parameters) overall maximum number of peers for bt downloads and maximum number of peers per torrent including unlimited number specified by zero (0).
I agree that limiting the number of tcp connections in BitTorrent is useful. I'll work for this in the future release.
Added --bt-max-peers option to limit the number of peers per torrent. As requested, 0 means unlimited number of peers.
No, the configuration of overall maximum number of peers is still missing.
