Adds the ability to download build artifacts via the BitTorrent protocol.
After installing the plugin and running new builds, artifacts above a certain size (10Mb by default) get a torrent icon in the artifacts list.
Clicking on the icon downloads a torrent file ready to be opened in a BitTorrent client.
The artifacts are seeded by the server and by the agent which produced the artifact.
Both the server and agent bind on the first available port in 6881-6889 interval, so these ports should be reachable.
- Use the BitTorrent protocol for artifact dependencies - agents will use the BitTorrent protocol to download artifact dependencies not only from the server, but from the other seeding agents too.
- Allow users to download artifacts via a BitTorrent client - a torrent icon is displayed near to the artifacts available for downloading via the torrent protocol.
See the "Torrent Settings" page in the server administration for changing the configuration options.
