A BitTorrent tracker with additional distributed functionality
[ excerpt from developer's web site with modifications ] One crucial component of the BitTorrent structure is the tracker. This is a small program which is hosted by someone who wants to share a file using BitTorrent. Anyone that wants to download that file needs to connect to the tracker to receive a list of other peers already participating in the download of the file. The tracker is a standalone program. If the tracker goes offline, new peers will not be able to join the download. This makes the tracker the weak link of the BitTorrent solution. What if the tracker were able to share its peer list with other trackers? This would create a redundant network of trackers, all aware of all peers participating in the download. Peak load would be reduced, and if one tracker goes offline new peers would still be able to contact one of the other trackers and join the download.
