Benefits of DHT?


Recommended Posts

DHT doesn't really have a direct effect on speeds. With it enabled, it might generate a lot of "connections," which can bog some network hardwares/softwares down. With it disabled, you might not find sources for data where the torrent's tracker no longer has any seeds/peers. It's a tradeoff.

The main benefit of DHT is the fact that it's a tracker without a single point of failure (the tracker server), since DHT is a distributed tracker kept afloat by every single peer on the DHT network. If one node drops off the DHT network, it doesn't have any impact on its working state -- it'll still work.
