Bug#458819: ITP: nettee -- a network "tee" program
I had not much knownledge about the torrent protocol and then i have
read about it to compare to nettee.
- 'BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer file sharing (P2P) communications
- 'downloads can take time to rise to full speed because it may take
time for enough peer connections to be established, and it takes
time for a node to receive sufficient data to become an effective
At first, it appeared to be a good solution by the protocol design goals
but the defficiences for the clone needs (fixme):
- It was designed to operate in WAN networks where there are high
latencies and slow bandwith compared to the exactly oppose in the
LANs. Nettee could make better here.
- It appears that the initial times to get full download speed is not
instantaneous (like in nettee) but dependent in a exchange messages
that would be not necessary.
- it's a lot complex protocol. Why not make a simple protocol (like in
- designed to lans
- designed to generic proposities and not specific to any operation
A defficience could be the node dead in the chain, but there is
approaches implemented that contour this problems.
Have i convinced you that nettee is cool and that could be offered to
the debian users? And, could you be my sponsor? :)
