Slyck P2P Network Stats - Sources & Methodology

Postby mslap04 » Wed Apr 27, 2005 4:12 pm

Hi,

This is my first post, but have frequented Slyck for some time now. I have proudly referenced Slyck's statistics when discussing P2P traffic numbers with others; however, recently I have been asked by skeptics to back up the numbers I have been quoting.

Could you tell me where Slyck gets its individual P2P network stats from? I'm looking for the sources for each of the networks that Slyck posts statistics for, e.g., where do the Gnutella stats come from?

Thanks,
mslap04

You should read today's article, and find out most of your answers.

The gnutella stats come from limewire's crawler..

Thanks Tom, I was hoping to pick your brain a little more... :)

1. How accurate do you think the latest stats on warez.com are?

2. Was Slyck getting its Warez stats from this site before it stop reporting them?

3. What's your best estimate for a BT global stat? Do you think isohunt.com's 1.69 mil indexed peers is the best guessimate currently available?

Thanks again, m
