Stepwise Fair-Share Buffering for Gossip-Based Peer-to-Peer Data Dissemination

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The authors consider buffer management in support of large-scale gossip-based peer-to-peer data dissemination protocols. Coupled with an efficient buffering mechanism, system-wide buffer usage can be optimized while providing reliability and scalability in such protocols. They propose a novel approach, stepwise fair-share buffering, that provides uniform load distribution and reduces the overall buffer usage where every peer has a partial view of the system. They report and discuss the comparative performance results with existing buffering approaches as well as random buffering which serves as a benchmark.
