Still don't understand torrents

Recommended Posts

I have studied all I can about how torrents work but still don't understand the behavior I see with torrents I am downloading. Some torrents download readily and at good rates while others just dribble or don't download at all even though there are over 100 peers and many seeds listed. I can go to the list of trackers and it will indicate "working" and show seeds. The peer list may indicate that peers only have the same percentage of the download that I do, or sometimes no peers show up in the list but are indicated in the peers column on the main torrent list. If 'working' trackers have seeds, isn't 100% of the torrent content available to all peers? Someone please enlighten me!
