Sid (or seeder) is a user of a torrent that is fully downloaded all files from a specific distribution. Downloaded, he can start the distribution to those users who have not yet done so. Led can limit the speed of all downloads or certain, at this time, if he needs a free channel of the Internet. To become a seeder, it is not necessary to download 100% of the required files and then distribute them. You can create your unique hand most importantly, the quality of its design conformed to the requirements of a specific tracker.

Many torrent trackers have ratings of the top seeders who seeded the greatest amount of information. However, these data are not always real. A seeders cheat their rankings as a top place provides user tracker different options and possibilities. Such cheating is severely punished.


The feasts (or litchi) - those who download the file using torrent. As soon as the PIR will download 100% of the information from the current torrent, it becomes a led. The ability to share information with the distribution of the seeds and peers. Only the latter does not have the physical ability to give all the data of the torrent, so they give only available.

Many torrent trackers have a limit on downloading data. Once it is achieved, then the user has to give information to later be able to download. However, the number of such trackers is very small, most of them are located abroad.

The ratio between seeders and peers

The more seeders and less peers the particular torrent, the higher the speed of downloading data. Because of this, we introduced the concept of the quality of the torrent. Users have their individual rating on each individual torrent tracker where there is registration. This rating is grown not only on the basis of the amount of transferred information to other users, but based on how actively it draws on information from others. This is called ratio. If ratio>1, the user gives more information than shakes. If ratio<1, on the contrary.
