Development of a Bittorrent Monitor


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Didn't know where else to ask this, this seemed like the most appropriate place.

I am looking for a developer who can help me develop a Torrent Tracker Monitoring software.

Basic Objective & Scope of this Monitoring tool is to Figure out the popularity of a torrent within a particular country/region.

This can be done by having a List of torrents to track, and then periodically checking with the Trackers hosting that torrent for Information about the different peers downloading it.

It should do the following:

1. Acquire & Analyze torrents

- Get torrents from an RSS Feed

- Scan a local folder where torrents will be updated

- Store all of this in the Database

- Support Magnet links

2. Multi-threaded Tracker Monitoring

- Connect to trackers

- Acquire Peer List regularly

- Filter by Country

- Determine other information

- Store in Database

3. Other Monitoring

- DHT - Find relevant peers & store data

- Peer Exchange

- Local Peer Discovery

4. Misc

- Should be able to stop the service & resume it from where it was left off

- Should be highly multi-threaded, needs to Monitor a Huge amount of Torrents (>50k)

- If possible, should be able to run the Monitoring tool as a coordinated service on multiple systems

Last I checked, the Monotorrent library provides for a lot of the above features. If someone could help me tweak the functionality, and build on top of the Monotorrent library, it would be great.

I am looking to PAY for this project obviously :) . Interested people please do get in touch.

This could end up being a really useful piece of software for everyone.
