HyperCBR: Large-Scale Content-Based Routing in a Multidimensional Space

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Content-Based Routing (CBR) is becoming increasingly popular as a building block for distributed applications. CBR differs from classical routing paradigms as messages are routed based on their content rather than their destination address, which fosters decoupling and flexibility in the application's distributed architecture. However, most available systems realize CBR by relying on a tree-shaped overlay network and adopt a routing strategy based on broadcasting subscription requests, thus hampering applicability in very large-scale networks. In this paper, the authors observe that a fundamental underpinning of any CBR protocol is for messages and subscriptions to "Meet" at some points in the network.
