In large Peer-To-Peer (P2P) overlay networks, nodes usually share resources to support all kinds of applications. In such networks, a subset of the nodes may assume the role of broker in order to act as intermediaries for finding the shared resources. When some notion of distance between nodes such as the inter-node latency is defined, a brokers may be responsible for maintaining information about resources shared by a group of nodes that are close to each other, with the set of nodes assigned to a broker being determined by the broker's location.
