    what is the difference between number of peers on a tracker and the number of users on a tracker?

    "users" is the actual number of members while "peers" is the total number of connections i.e. seeds/leechers e.g. 2 users seeding(or leeching) 5 torrents each = 2 users and 10 peers

    it makes perfect sense the number of peers on a tracker is how many torrents a user has open for all users.

    a user is shown as so many peers as the number of torrents he's seeding/leeching, thats why the peer nr. is almost always higher than the user no. (without the need of all users to be peers)
