Glossary of BitTorrent terms.

For more detail on what your vendor's software means by those terms, have you written the maker of your particular BitTorrent client? Have you gone through their documentation for their product? What do they say it means?

(Note that is client not clint. Using correct terms in your searches might help you get more responses from the search engines.)

As I understand this (although I'm no expert on the technology)...

"X of Y connected (Z in swarm)"

The Z represents the total number of peers report by the trackers, the Y represents the total number of peers you've connected to so far, and X represents the total number of peers you are currently connected to.
