I don't know of any protocol document for this, but currently, BNBT 7.7, and
BNBT 8.0 based trackers have link capabilities for sharing peer lists
between trackers.
 
When the next version of the BNBT link protocol comes out, we're going to
release a protocol document for it.

Subject: [bittorrent] Inter-Tracker Protocol ?


Hello,

I'm pretty new to the list, so please excuse me if this has already come up,
or there is some FAQ that this question is answered in.  And I may show my
ignorance with this question.  But....

Are there any inter-tracker protocols defined for BitTorrent?

(I.e., a protocol that could be used by BitTorrent trackers to communicate
things like "list of clients", and "download status of clients", etc.  That
way you could load-balance amoung loosely coupled BitTorrent trackers.)


See ya
