Peer-To-Peer (P2P) systems are typically decentralized, distributed and anonymous systems. One common protocol for file-sharing P2P applications is Gnutella. The Gnutella protocol requires peers to broadcast messages to their neighbors when they search files. The message passing generates a lot of traffic in the network, which degrades the quality of service. The authors propose the new method to optimize the speed of search and to improve the quality of service in a Gnutella based peer-to-peer environment with using semantic routing and priority of nodes.
