Bit torrent protocol is one of the widely used protocols for downloading and uploading files from servers without any load on local system or network. This protocol is a peer- peer protocol for sharing files. This protocol allows users to consume and provide sharing of files directly in the network without any central entity. This protocol works on TCP layer which is a top layer in network.
Advantages of using this protocol allow users to download different parts of the file concurrently. Multiple downloading of files will not show any effect on servers.
