PiedPiper scalability issues


In that episode, there were 5 things they said out loud.

Hence, Dinesh tried to decrease the manifest file sizes by compressing them (probably using the algorithm Richard wrote)

Since pied-piper was self-hosted at that time (thanks to Son of Anton), they couldn’t scale immediately given these issues.

In a Peer2Peer network, where there is no single server.

Maybe they wanted the peer-to-seed ratio to be optimal. To accommodate new peers, they might have started moving seeds to different swarms with no/fewer seeds.

Whatever they did, it worked as they rescued the condor man as pied-piper scaled it real quick.
