BitMon: an integrated BitTorrent DHT monitoring framework
BitMON is a tool for automatic monitoring of the distributed hash table (DHT) introduced by the peer-to-peer (P2P) network BitTorrent. A DHT enables access to key-value-pairs, distributedly stored by a self-organizing P2P-network. BitTorrent uses its DHT to find owners of a specified file without relying on any central machine (which is also called tracker).

BitMON integrates measurement, analysis and graphical visualization within one tool. All of those steps are performed by BitMON fullautomatically including archiving of results. BitMON was developed as a framework and can easily be extended by new kinds of measurements or analysis modules. BitMON's source code is available on request.  

BitMON uses JKad as Kademlia library.

Live monitoring of the BitTorrent-DHT

In the following we present results gained by live measurement of the BitTorrent-DHT. The shown diagrams are regularly updated by BitMON to depict the current status of the DHT. All results were gained from the BitTorrent-DHT introduced by the mainline client. If you have any questions regarding the results or BitMON please contact Konrad Jünemann.
