Console: Aspera Console additional parameters

When using Aspera Console and setting up a smart transfer, it would be nice to be able to set the number of "threads" to be used per smart transfer.

    Thanks for the additional information. We will take this for future consideration.

    The idea is when a person sets up a 'smart transfer', they should be allowed to set the number of thread in the console.

    e.g. --scan-threads=6 --local-fs-threads=6 --remote-fs-threads=6 --remote-scan-threads=6

    The parameters available on the command line should be available within the console, this way the sessions don't have to depend on a 'global' setting in the aspera.conf file.

    The console seems to be lacking a lot of options available on the command line.....

    Can you please clarify what you are referring to when you said "threads"? Is your overall goal to improve transfer performance or something else? Thanks
