Not open for further replies.


I have some doubts about torrents.

what does in seeding x(XX) and peer x(XX) mean - where x is a number?
what does the tracker status "scrape ok" mean?
what does Debug status "0|0|4" mean?
what is "DHT" mean how does that help?
what does "unable to map UPnP" in logger mean, and how does mapping help?
what does swarm mean?

In peer screen at the bottom:
what does maxup. maxdown. Peer dl. mean?

I am using uTorrent.

^^ i can answer only ur first question....seeds(XXX) represents the number of users who have the complete file, while leechers(XXX) is the number of users who have are downloading the file at the moment and peers(XXX) is simply seeds(XXX)+leechers(XXX)

o n DHT i guess means trackerless support
