Vuze, formerly known as Azureus, is a BitTorrent client used for peer-to-peer file transfers. Like other BitTorrent clients, Vuze gets information about other users it should download from and upload to from a tracker, which tracks the other users downloading and uploading the file. All torrent files contain one or more tracker addresses, so Vuze can normally download the file without additional trackers. In some cases, particularly if the tracker goes down or if there aren't enough other users connected to the tracker, you might have to add a new tracker to a torrent.
