eyeDonkey is an open source tool, which analyses and visualizes information about files shared through an edonkey network.
It is published under the GNU General Public License.
The main goal of this project was the development of a simple edonkey-client based on the emule protocol documentation,
wich collects information about shared files, servers and clients for the purpose of analysing and visualizing it.
For this reason the application consists of two parts with the database acting as interface between them.
To be able to display the location of a given IP address we needed a translation from a certain IP to its longtitude and latitude.
Here, the MaxMind GeoIP database comes into play. It is a free and open source collection of APIs
for looking up IP address locations. It is also hosted on sourceforge.net.
