Executive Summary

The dynamics of peers, namely Churn, is an inherent property of Peer-To-Peer (P2P) systems and is critical to their design and evaluation. Although every excellent P2P protocol has some solution to this issue, studies on Churn are still seldom. This paper studies various factors related to Churn, and uses them to analyze and evaluate P2P protocols. Prior researches on Churn are all based on the P2P network factors in Churn environment, and their difference is whether to use these factors as predecessor references to build Churn analytical models or as successor references to test the models. According to this difference, this paper first divides various factors into two categories: impacting Churn and affected by Churn.
