Monitoring a BitTorrent Tracker for Peer-to-Peer System Analysis
This paper introduces a BitTorrent tracker monitoring architecture and implementation. The tracker monitoring architecture is designed with robustness, scalability and extensibility in mind, making it suitable for large scale BitTorrent tracker monitor analysis. The solution is implemented as part of a BitTorrent experiment for studying the behavior of a real-life swarm. The peer-to-peer network can be analyzed considering both statistic data variation and geographical distribution of data, leaving room for other analysis methods to be implemented if needed. The paper presents challenges and solutions found while designing, implementing and integrating the components of the tracker monitoring solution.
