      Hi Adrian,

      I've got Transmissin working now. I haven't set up gnuplot and
      logrotate yet. But the interface is not very clear to me. I understand
      the workflow (source - work - target). But I do not understand the
      options (purge, remove, etc). And how can I see the ratio?

      Thanks.
