The trace T1'03 was collected from SuprNova with instrumented BitTorrent clients during the period between 2003 and 2004, and it was collected by Dr Johan Pouwelse and et al, and studied in [1][2][3]. SuprNova was the biggest BitTorrent community at that time and it distributed various types of contents. This trace contains peer level data, which was collected from 12 big swarms during the period between Dec 6, 2003 and Jan 17, 2004, with a sampling interval of 2.5 minutes; in total, 28,423,470 sessions were captured.
