mod_bt is a BitTorrent tracker for the Apache webserver.
It is written in C and runs as an Apache 2.x module. It is possible for mod_perl or PHP to directly access the tracker's information; no need to download and bdecode scrape URLs. The tracker is fully configured from within Apache's own configuration file.
Instead of running a webserver, running a tracker, and running expensive code to parse the tracker's statistics and produce an HTML webpage, you can run it all in one process.
Direct access to the tracker's operating details is given via PHP and Perl language bindings, so your webpage doesn't have to spend time doing expensive transactions like bdecoding to get at statistics.
