Trace T16'10

The trace T16'10 contains three datasets that are parts of the BTWorld measurement (ongoing) conducted by the PDS group[1], and Zhang and et al.[2] studied them to characterize flashcrowds in real-world BitTorrent trackers. All the three datasets contain the trackers scrapes from OpenBitTorrent and PublicBitTorrent, which are two of the largest public BitTorrent trackers nowadays. The sampling intervals for these datasets was one hour. The tracker scrapes contain information about the numbers of leechers and seeders in the swarms hosted by those tracker, and do not have information of individual peers. This trace in total covers 10,510 swarms between 2009 and 2010.
