TRACKER
The 'tracker' is a central server (an application run by a webmaster of a bittorrent site) which manages the downloading/uploading requests and transfers. The tracker only manages connections. It does not have any knowledge of the contents of the files being distributed. In turn this allows a large number of peers that can be supported by a single tracker with relatively small amounts of bandwidth used.
