The Tracker is the center-pivot of Archiveteam's distributed archiving efforts. The Warrior is the yang to the Tracker's yin. The warriors get the list of current projects from [1].

For most projects, the tracker provides seed points such as usernames, and keeps track of who retrieved what resources and where they're stashed.

Hardware

The tracker runs on a Linode 1 GB instance operated by chronomex. The system is tracked by Munin.

Software

alard takes care of making the tracker run happily. The custom software is a python based HTTP application that sends and receives JSON payloads and uses Redis for the data store; all on top of Debian Linux. The code is hosted on GitHub.

The warriors get the list of current projects from the Warrior HQ. The code is in the warrior-hq repository.
