Ask tracker for scrape information?


Recommended Posts

From the manual:


Ask tracker for scrape information tells µTorrent to scrape the tracker (ask for peer and seed counts). By default, the tracker is scraped only when the torrent job is started, but this can be changed.


Scrape information only contains peer and seed counts? Doesn't a normal (scrape-less?) request contain a list of peers already? Then how come the client can have that list and still not know the number of peers? Is a non-scrape request only a plain peer list, not two lists (seeders + leechers) ?

Does the option affect queued torrents, finished, paused, uploading, downloading, does it increase or decrease traffic to the tracker, should the option be enabled or disabled if the client runs for days without being checked?
