As far as the developers are aware this is not true, and is quite a serious accusation. Can you elaborate on why you believe this.

How do you know this isn't on the tracker's end? Perhaps they don't reload their stats right away. I have no idea how these trackers operate.

comment:4 Changed 8 years ago by soyer

It works with 1.76, but it doesnt work with 1.92.

It's the same with other trackers too (with 1.92).

These stats are realtime (I think). After the announce, I can see how much I or other clients download/upload.

comment:5 Changed 8 years ago by livings124

That doesn't make sense. Are you saying the stats aren't updated UNTIL an announce. How could the tracker know your stats before an announce? Or am I misinterpreting what you're saying.

How it works with 1.76 (or other clients)

starting to download a torrent

  • the page says: I am a leecher, I downloaded/uploaded 0 kbyte with 0 kbyte/s my ratio is --, etc..

if the download take more than 30-40 minutes, there are an announce,

  • the page says: I am a leecher, I downloaded n kbyte and uploaded n kbyte

if the download finished

  • the page says: I am a seeder, I am downloaded n kbyte and uploaded n kbyte

after an announce the stat is up to date, I can see my download/upload amount, speed, ratio, status, starting time, last announce time, client name

with 1.92 - you can see the attachments - it doesnt work the same as 1.76 (or other clients)

Perhaps it's a recent change with the tracker. How you contacted them to investigate the issue? I have no idea what they're doing behind the scenes.

I can confirm this, but i tcpdumped the tracker report:

GET /announce/xxxx/announce?info_hash=xxxx&peer_id=-TR192Z-af5ej968p29m&port=51417&uploaded=0&downloaded=0&left=428352&numwant=200&key=xxxxx&compact=1&supportcrypto=1&event=started HTTP/1.1
GET /announce/xxxx/announce?info_hash=xxxx&peer_id=-TR192Z-af5ej968p29m&port=51417&uploaded=0&downloaded=428352&left=0&numwant=200&key=xxxxx&compact=1&supportcrypto=1&event=completed HTTP/1.1

But if i look the tracker webpage, i got 0 downloaded. (i'll try with a old version, if i found one)

But maybe it's a tracker bug (or cache feature :/), i tested with 1.76 and same 0 dl, and i tested with utorrent 2.0 b 17920, and same result.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

Good enough for me. This is a tracker issue, not a Transmission issue. Thanks Elbandi!
