Jef"I am the pusher robot"Spaleta - First Torrent Movie
ramblings of the self-elected Fedora party whip
First Torrent Movie
As promised, I've started making animations of some of the torrent activity for the Fedora 8 torrents. And instead of using youtube, I'm now uploading the final videos to so you can get access to the original theora files.
The first torrent animation is of the F8 Live ppc torrent

Making the torrent animations is a bit more difficult because we don't have timestamped torrent activity logs just hanging around. We've got snapshots, so we needed to start accumulating snapshot information so we can build an historical picture of activity.

What's visually interesting about torrent activity, is that we can actually keep up with when clients enter and leave the swarm so it should hopefully provide a more dynamic picture... as long as i parse the data correctly.

I started with the PPC torrent data primarily because its one of the smallest files so I was using it to debug the script. You'll notice that the bugs aren't all out, the last 4 frames or so show a total client count of 0.

I'll be moving on to larger torrent datasets and posting them to over the next few days.
