Not all Seeders/Leechers Being Presented

Recommended Posts

I've noticed on countless torrents that i've used that the website may say a certain number of seeders/leecher are in the swarm but when i use µtorrent, these results are much smaller. i know that there are more cause i use the same torrents on azureus and other clients and the all the said amount are presented, is this just me or am i just nuts?

for ex. bla bla video.torrent seeds 43 peers 12

µtorrent shows seeds (1)2 peers (2)4

azureus shows seeds (12)39 peers (9)11

You are looking at the (# in swarm) on the General tab, right?

The listview shows the number of seeders/peers in the cache when the torrent is active.

When inactive, it shows the scrape value.

Azureus always shows the scrape value I believe.

An announce only gives you a limited number of peers (50-100 usually) so that can account for the apparently huge discrepancy.

I don't see anything wrong with your screenshot.

If you read my first post, you'd see why # of # connected is different from # in swarm.

"An announce only gives you a limited number of peers (50-100 usually) so that can account for the apparently huge discrepancy."

# of # connected is the number of peers or seeders in the internal peer cache.

When seeding, the seeder column on the list view shows the number of seeds in the swarm, but the peers column shows the number of peers in the cache.

When downloading, both values displayed are the internal peer cache, I do believe. :P
