opentracker [ -i ip ] [ -p port ] [ -P port ] [ -r redirect ] [ -d dir ] [ -u user ] [ -A ip ] [ -f config ] [ -s livesyncport ] [ -w whitelistfile ]


This tracker is open in a sense that everyone announcing a torrent is welcome to do so and will be informed about anyone else announcing the same torrent. Only source IPs are accepted. The tracker implements a minimal set of essential features only but was able respond to far more than 10000 requests per second on a Sun Fire 2200 M2 (that's where we found no more clients able to fire more of our script).
