How many peers does one node have?

As I can see from the website: https://ethstats.net/
There different peers for different amount of nodes.
How is the node graphic formed?
Why some have lots of peers while others not?

Thank you.

    It depends on whether or not the node accepts incoming connections. My node has maxpeers=50 and quickly reaches that number just from incoming connections (it typically has time to create 2-4 outgoing connections before the maximum is reached). Otherwise, the peer count is dependent on your node connecting to other peers that are accepting inbound connections and haven't reach their maximum yet.
