#4072 closed Enhancement (fixed)

Remove the grossly inaccurate and therefore misleading "known" field in Inspector->Peers

Reported by: x190 Owned by: livings124
Priority: Normal Milestone: 2.30
Component: Mac Client Version: 2.20
Severity: Minor Keywords: known, inspector, peers


The "known" field increments totals from past sessions and sums DHT node peer results to the point where the number is magnified by a factor limited only by the number of restarts for a torrent. This results in totals, for example, of "88 known" when best tracker number is 7 and "26 known" when the user is, in fact, the only participant.

Since this "known" value is farcical and only serves to totally confuse the user, and since the "DL from" and "UL to" fields simply duplicate the info in the window above, I propose replacing that entire line with "Swarm Total #, Seeds #, Leeches #" and display the best updated single tier numbers from the tracker list or in the case of trackerless DHT torrents display only "Swarm Total #" updating with the last best node value received.

That was the last use of that field that I know of, so it's been removed from libtransmission too.
