Disabling peer-to-peer in EXBO

What is peer-to-peer downloading?

Peer-to-peer (P2P) computing or networking is a distributed application architecture that partitions tasks or workloads between peers. Peers are equally privileged, equipotent participants in the network. They are said to form a peer-to-peer network of nodes.

Peers make a portion of their resources, such as processing power, disk storage or network bandwidth, directly available to other network participants, without the need for central coordination by servers or stable hosts. Peers are both suppliers and consumers of resources, in contrast to the traditional client–server model in which the consumption and supply of resources are divided.

When should peer-to-peer downloading be disabled?

You should disable peer-to-peer downloading in the following situations:

  • The download speed in the EXBO Launcher is low;
  • There is a high ping in the STALCRAFT game.
