Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors consider the popular OPNET simulator as a tool for performance evaluation of algorithms operating in Peer-To-Peer (P2P) networks. They created simple framework and used it to analyze the flooding search algorithm which is a popular technique for searching files in an unstructured P2P network. They investigated the influence of the number of replicas and Time To Live (TTL) of search queries on the algorithm performance. Preparing the simulation they did not reported the problems which are commonly encountered in P2P dedicated simulators although the size of simulated network was limited.
