Cool...we started doing that this morning.


We attempted about 20 torrents so far, and 1 finished (UMG project). The
other torrents don't seem like they will finish within the time period.


Seems like many of the torrents are on private or offline trackers, so
the tracker would be reporting dead #s. However, we are still seeing
peers through DHT. Are you taking your DHT numbers into consideration?

Tab, just pick some manually to verify.

Wow Ivan. That drastically reduced the load. Glad you implemented the


We're down to 531 unique torrents, whereas we were close to 1000 before
the chanhe. In the dead_torrents folder, there are over 1500 torrents
now. How can we monitor the status of those? Manually checking each
torrent would not be feasible.

I've made some changes to my torrent program to monitor any dead
torrents. Basically, it will consider a torrent is dead if there is no
one seeding/downloading more than 24 hours.

The dead torrents will be moved to the "dead_torrents" folder on the ftp
site. QA can verify those torrents to see if they are really dead or
very much alive.
