In this paper the authors propose an efficient algorithm for clustering nodes, classifying and replication of content on demand basis for content distribution in p2p overlay networks. Peer-to-peer overlay networks are a good solution for distributed computing than client-server model since nodes in P2P networks act both as client and server. With such functionality of managing replicas is an astonishing task and the authors designed an architecture for content distribution. In the proposed architecture, nodes are grouped into strong, medium and weak clusters based on their weight vector.
