Peer-to-peer overlay network management through AGILE: An adaptive, group-of-interest-based lookup engine

Peer-to-peer (P2P) systems enable the direct communica tion between peers, which offer or request for services, resources, or content. While distributed peer to-peer lookup services define the most important function in P2P systems, scalability and efficiency are key for those services. Currently, state of the art mechanisms actively create and manage a peer application layer overlay network to achieve this goal. The proposed mechanism AGILE (Adaptive, Group-of-Interest-based Lookup Engine) extends this management approach, where the overlay network adapts such as to bring requesting peers and desired lookup items close together, reducing the number of hops and, thus, latency as well as bandwidth requirements for a lookup. At the same time, AGILE introduces mechanisms to build a fair system. Show more
