This number of users is typically larger than the commonly used number of unchoke slots (4).
The optimistic unchoke allows nodes to discover better peers to exchange traffic with.
2) Seeder phase algorithms: BitTorrent seeders apply different unchoke strategies depending on the implementation.
peers leaving and joining the swarm) and (ii) the combination of different neighbour selection algorithms implemented in BitTorrent clients such as the unchoke algorithm, the optimistic connect algorithm (used in the leecher phase) and the optimistic disconnect algorithm (used in the seeder phase) described in Section 2.
As we have seen the main algorithms applied by a BitTorrent leecher are unchoke, optimistic unchoke and optimistic connect.
In addition, seeders apply different algorithms: proportional or balanced unchoke and optimistic disconnect.
This value is higher than the typical number of unchoke slots used by the leecher (4).
Time elements evaluated were Walk to tree, Acquire, Fell, Delimb/top, and Delay for chainsaw felling; and Travel empty, Choke, Travel loaded, Unchoke
, and Delay for the cable skidder.
