Source chunk distribution...

Recommended Posts


I'm wondering if there isn't a flaw in the design of the torrent protocol, or maybe just in µTorrent?

In downloading a pretty hard-to-get torrent (only two sources) why do these two sources "join-up" in downloading chunks?

Does this not create more traffic, in more requests and negotiation?

Wouldn't it be overall faster (and less traffic) if they sent me separate pieces?
