Today i am going to discuss an interesting and important topic that is about torrent download. Everyone know the process of download, but i will discuss what is torrent download and how torrent is the best download.
What is download?
You know what is download but i will discuss the technical matter of downloading files. Files are kept in server, you get one copy of that file in your PC. The main things to remind is that the authority has to manage bandwidth for you which is costly too. If the file is 500MB and is downloaded 10 times then it means that we used 5000MB bandwidth of that server. Some of server doesn’t support resume facility. In that case if you have downloaded 50% of the file and then got disconnected from Internet then lost the total file. You will have to restart the download from first.
To resolve these sort of problem the American programmer Bram Cohen introduced a solution. That is the thing i am going to discuss.
What is torrent?
Torrent is nothing but a simple file with an extension .torrent its a simple file of some kilo byte. It stores the necessary information for your target download. You need to collect this file to download your target file.
What is torrent client?
Torrent client reads the information from the torrent file. It search the torrent network and download the file step by step in your PC. One of the interesting matter is that you might see that it started downloading two or more file in parallel. It can be called torrent downloader which downloads through torrent file.
How does torrent works?
Let 5 people are downloading same file from different place. First two people has downloaded 70% already. From that time the rest people started to download. Then the rest people will download from both source and other two people. This way if the source is not avail able for some hour the download will not stop. The system is called P2P file sharing network.
