Executive Summary

Peer-to-Peer systems become popular applications but suffer from insufficient resource availability which is caused by free-riders and inefficient lookup algorithms. To address the first cause, a number of recent works have focused on providing appropriate incentive mechanisms to encourage participants to contribute their resources to the P2P systems. To improve the lookup efficiency, locality-aware peer management has been introduced into the research community. However, existing proposals attempt to optimize the service performance during the data transmission period mostly after performing the neighboring lookup, which cannot address the fundamental concern of reducing lookup traffic. Besides, existing implementations select available contributors among random neighbors suggested by a specific server.
