Overlapping of trackers/peers?


Recommended Posts

Something I was thinking, I hear of people recommending adding a whole slew of "public trackers" to their torrents for better distribution, etc.....would there be any possibility of viewing the peers "per tracker"?

It could really shed some light on how many "duplicated" peers there are between the various "trackers"

For example, for a torrent I'm DLing now, I got

First column, Seeds; Second column, Peers.

[DHT] 141 120

[Local Peer Discovery] 0 7

[Peer Exchange] 288 332

http://tracker.publicbt.com:80/announce 147 160

udp://tracker.openbittorrent.com:80/announce 111 110

It would be interesting to know how many "duplicated" peers there are between each listed tracker-mechanism.

Willing to bet there's a large duplicate of duplicated peers, and that the actual "torrent trackers" are likely of no help even :)
