  • Peers is the total number of peers (from all active torrents) you are connected to.
  • ulr is the total upload rate from all active torrents. If the bar has two different colors then you have a noticeable protocol overhead from download.
  • dlr is the total download rate from all active torrents. The upload rate will be adjusted to the download rate.
  • prs is the total number peers from all active torrents. This number also affects dynamic upload rate.
  • icc indicates incoming connection for torrents (1st) and incoming DHT (not libtorrent DHT) requests (2nd).
  • DB in the title bar indicates database mode.
  • DHT[.LT] */5000 in the title bar indicates active DHT service and the current number of tracked info hashes.
    MooPolice will not accept more than 5000 info hashes from the DHT network. The number of peers per info hash is limited to 40.
