Combine BNBT tracker with GeoTool API

Basically, use database which GeoTool provides publicly to calculate the individual geographically coordinates for each downloading peer. These coordinates are going to be transmitted to the downloading client. This can be achieved by using the database API which the company MaxMind provides.There is a open source version of BitTorrent tracker available on the web which is written by C++ and totally compatible to the original BitTorrent tracker which is written by Python. When the tracker operates unter a Linux system, we can use the IPC(Inter Process Communication) technology like Shared Memory and synchronisation technology like Semaphores to enable the data exchange between the database API and the tracker.This means tracker sends coordinate requests and corresponding answers via shared memory, while semaphores are used for a synchronised access to shared memory.


BitTorrent tracker optimization

Download clients are required to firstly communicate with the tracker to get other peers which have already begun downloading the same file that the clients want to get. During the download, tracker randomly and periodically provides clients newer peers which have joined the same download group. Optimize the tracker by using GeoTool so that the tracker can provide clients the nearest peers through geographical coordinates and therefore speed up the entire download time. </span></span></span></p><p><span style="line-height: 19px; white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="line-height: 20px; white-space: normal;"><br /></span></span></p>
