About the talk:
| A peer-to-peer(P2P) system consists of a dynamic set of
nodes that organizes itself in an overlay network. In general, this overlay
network may have nothing to do with the location of nodes on the physical
network. We propose a generic, distributed hill-climbing mechanism called
Apocrypha to make any P2P overlay "network-aware'', and thus improve its
quality. We demonstrate the applicability and utility of Apocrypha on two
different P2P systems: the Chord system which uses a deterministic overlay
topology, and the Gnutella system which operates on an ad hoc topology.
We also describe new, improved routing protocols for the Chord system,
and introduce the long-circuit phenomenon in Gnutella.
This is joint work with Qixiang Sun and Hector Garcia-Molina.
