If you do something silly, like make a really wide ranging trakt import and end up with say 5,000 items in your queue, SAB or Get will both grind to a halt due to the way it process/saves the queue. You could delete and re-add items to the queue, but on SAB if you enable 'Only get articles for top of queue' normal speed will be restored.

Thanks for the heads up! I've also been experimenting with pausing downloads while unpacking - what are your thoughts on this setting?

On a mechanical drive set-up or something with limited CPU/RAM it's more useful, on something with NVMe, not so much, a lot depends on how much repair work you have to do.

Thanks for the tip, I definitely noticed the slow downs where I had 100s of queued items. Hopefully this fixes the issue!

Just upgrade to 10Gbit, you know you still want to ;)
Haha...it’s coming.... have 1Gbit currently, 10 will be available as soon as the backbone upgrade happens. I am REALLY happy with the 1....but....10 > 1 at the end of the day 🤣

Pause while unpacking + direct unpack helps keep the queue flowing without backlogging as well. Direct unpack with platter drives is fine until you get an item that needs repaired, then all hell breaks lose.
