what does the 'avail' column mean ?

I presume it is somethong to do with availability, but it shows numbers greater than 1 ...

(also, it would be nice if the UI told you what it meant ... I am using deluge 1.3.5, and the default interface, and could not find this information anywhere)

the number of distributed copies of the torrent. Note that one copy may be spread out among many peers. It tells how many copies there are currently of the rarest piece(s) among the peers this client is connected to.


tells the share of pieces that have more copies than the rarest piece(s). Divide this number by 1000 to get the fraction.

For example, if distributed_full_copies is 2 and distrbuted_fraction is 500, it means that the rarest pieces have only 2 copies among the peers this torrent is connected to, and that 50% of all the pieces have more than two copies.

If we are a seed, the piece picker is deallocated as an optimization, and piece availability is no longer tracked. In this case the distributed copies members are set to -1.

In plain english it means how many seeders (people who not downloading this torrent) for this torrent are out there.
