Incremental download with low number of peers


Recommended Posts

Got an 11 GB "dead" torrent with multiple files, 1 seed (not me, sometimes 2 seeds) and 2 connectable peers (including me but I'm not downloading or uploading). The other peer barely downloads anything and has to wait until the whole torrent finishes downloading.

I don't think there is a reason for random piece downloading in a case like this where there is actually 1 peer because the peer doesn't usually have another peer to upload to. What I suggest is that in a case of a multiple files torrent, where there are something like 1-3 active peers and seeds, downloading of pieces will be incremental so the user will have some completed files and won't have to wait until the whole torrent downloads.
