Seeders' resource allocation in two BitTorrent communities Link

catalogued by livingarchive.eu


Measurements of current and possible resource allocation in two BitTorrent communities. Allocations are measured at instants; there are 100 such measurements for Bitsoup and 88 for Filelist. For each timestamp, there are three xml files: one which expresses the numbers of seeders and leechers in each torrent, and has no seeder unallocated, and two files where torrents are listed with no seeder in them and seeders are listed with their capacity not allocated and with the list of torrents they can seed at the measurement instant. The two files represent different estimation strategies for files currently owned by each seeder. Such strategies are described in the accompanying paper.
