Default Re: Real Swarming already proven

'Real Swarming' does indeed exist, in Edonkey2000. Partial files are used immediately for uploading (once one chunk is complete), and upload priority is given to the rarest chunk that you have.

This feature is missing:

spreading small file partials over the network automatically (increasing availability and download speed, distributing often requested files, balance load).

This means you share also partials from files you donīt have!

AFAIK only mojo nation and freenet have REAL swarming, but I am not sure I didnīt test them yet!



Xolox (Gnutella) has also the ability to share partials but only these you REALLY share!
