Now-a-days, DHT-based P2P technology is used as a basis in many wide spread applications because of its scalability, robustness, and load balance. Many applications, including file sharing, communication and live video streaming are in a large distributed network environment. For an efficient and effective search in large data repositories, complex query processing becomes a major issue for DHT. Towards the goal of supporting complex queries in DHT-based P2P systems, this paper focuses on the usage of k-dimensional tree to build a tree-based index. The proposed index is built without modifying the structure of the overlay network. In this paper, the load balancing among peers is also considered according to the usage of kd-tree.
