Summary: An open and free bittorrent tracker
opentracker is a open and free bittorrent tracker project. It aims for minimal
resource usage and is intended to run at your wlan router. Currently it is
deployed as an open and free tracker instance.
Utilizing the highly scalable server framework from libowfat, opentracker can
easily serve multiple thousands of requests on a standard plastic WLAN-router,
limited only by your kernels capabilities ;)
One important design decision of opentracker was to not store any data
persistently. This reduces wear&tear on hard disks and eliminates problems
with corrupt databases.
opentracker allows several instances running in a cluster. Those clusters can
be synced with a simple protocol extension proposed here and implemented in
