"dag get <file_hash>" instead of
"ls <file_hash>" the local peer is added to the hash providers, but the contents of the hash are not downloaded!
So i guess i can use this (followed by
"dht findprovs <chunk_hash>") to know, if not the actual sender of a chunk, how many peers is each chunk stored in, without downloading the entire file to local peer.
Can someone of the code gurus confirm that?
@leerspace i saw your answer after i wrote this, i will dig into it.
I am (slowly) approaching what i want to achieve: Having the knowledge of where the chunks of a specific hash are stored, but without altering the provider list of any hash involved.
