Design and Evaluation of a Proxy Cache for Peer-to-Peer Traffic

Peer-To-Peer (P2P) systems generate a major fraction of the current Internet traffic, and they significantly increase the load on ISP networks and the cost of running and connecting customer networks (e.g., universities and companies) to the Internet. To mitigate these negative impacts, many previous works in the literature have proposed caching of P2P traffic, but very few (if any) have considered designing a caching system to actually do it. This paper demonstrates that caching P2P traffic is more complex than caching other Internet traffic, and it needs several new algorithms and storage systems.
