What are LEDs?

is difficult today to imagine a person who would not use the torrent tracker at least once in life.Yes, it is illegal, but in the end, the amount saved by using downloading pirated copies are impressive and make money to remain seized of this shameful, but profitable.However, it often happens that by using Peer-to-Peer networks, people do not have the slightest idea of ​​how they work: Who are LEDs, which determines the speed of downloading, why do you need to distribute and so on.All this will be discussed in this article.

Network type Peer-to-Peer - voluntary associations of computers around the world to exchange information over the Internet.The advantage of P2P-networks that by combining a plurality of participants can achieve speeds previously unimaginable for data transmission.The fact is that, as a rule, from any Internet connection speed of sending the information is less than the rate of reception - and it does not matter, we are talking about an ordinary home PC or a powerful server.Now imagine what would happen if tens of thousands of users will simultaneously access the same server with the aim to get a pirated copy of a new movie?The server is guaranteed to fail.That is why P2P networks operate on the principle "you me, and I tell you," that is, data is exchanged directly between users' computers while on the tracker (the server that monitors the flow of data and sends them) a copy of itself is not stored.Seeds and feasts - this the participants network peer-to-peer.Despite the fact that the network has a name, feasts - not alone, moreover, is not the main participants.

What are LEDs?When you first hear this word comes to mind an association with small fantasy creatures, but in reality everything is much easier.Seeds - those actors sharing the data that have already downloaded the entire file (ie all segments), and, accordingly, can send it to other users.Very often on the forums trackers can find the words "inadequate handing out", and so, handing out - this is LEDs.

With the concept of "feast" is a bit more complicated.If about who these LEDs, doubts and disagreements arise, something about feasts, there are two points of view.The first is that the feast can call any member of the P2P network (actually, so it's called peer-to-peer), but some experts believe that feasts - it is only those who are in the process of downloading (also sometimes referred to as liches).The author of this article considers more correct the first point of view, since then all three concepts - seed, feast and Lich - is logically consistent: the concept of "Feast" is generic with respect to the concepts of "seed" and "Leech".Thus, each banquet may be either immediately Sid (if it creates a new distribution) or become a lich, first download the file to distribute, and then turn into oxide when his computer begins sending data to other users.Naturally, the more oxides on hand, the high speed racing can be achieved lichami, but to increase their number causes the speed jumps to decrease.

We hope that in this article our readers to understand how the P2P network, who are LEDs, lychee and feasts.I would like to add that we recommend that you download using P2P-networks, only those materials that do not violate anyone's copyright and distributed freely.It is also recommended to be grateful to those who create hand, leaving the downloaded files on your computer in order to distribute them to other peers.So you continue distributing life and give more people the opportunity to enjoy a good movie or music.

wish you interesting hands, wide channels and a variety of LEDs!
