I like Jigdo and I have since i found out about it a couple years ago.
Today it was time for a jigdo vs torrent battle on the Fedora Unity F10-20090210-i386 respins
These Tests were all performed on the same machine, same network etc….
I downloaded the jigdo file from spins.fedoraunity.org and used the following command:
time jigdo-lite Fedora-Unity-20090210-10.jigdo
press 7 fro the i386 dvd and enter twice and let it run
when it finished I pressed Control-C and got the following output:
ok time for the torrent
i grabbed the torrent file from spins.fedoraunity.org and issued the time bittorrent command
after 45 minutes I took this pic and then stopped the torrent.
I want you to notice that I am not playing in tricks the bittorrent was able share and the ports where open for the bittorrent.
hmmm 32 Minutes for the Jigdo to complete verses the Torrents 45 minutes in and was only 6.1% done.
This is why I perfer Jigdo to useing Torrents.
