Bittorrent Tracker Update!
We've been seeing increasing amounts of traffic over the last few weeks on the Bittorrent tracker and this resulted in high server loads. Thus, with a view to plan for the future we've changed our Bittorrent tracker back-end to the C++ XBT. Earlier, we were using the XBtit tracker and since this was coded in PHP, once we hit around 1000 peers our server load would start to spike up. This new back-end should be able to handle around 10,000 peers easily without any visible effect on server load.
