What Is Swarm in BitTorrent?

A

A Swarm in BitTorrent is a network of computers, called peers, that communicate with each other to share (download and upload) a single file.

For example, a warm has 8 peers: 2 of them have 100% of the file and upload data to other 6 peers; 6 of them download data from other peers and may upload data to each other.

The term Swarm is a holdover from the predecessor to BitTorrent, a program called Swarmcast, originally from OpenCola.
