EARM: An Efficient and Adaptive File Replication With Consistency Maintenance in P2P Systems

In p2p systems, file replication and replica consistency maintenance are most widely used techniques for better system performance. Most of the file replication methods replicates file in all nodes or at two ends in a client-server query path or close to the server, leading to low replica utilization, produces unnecessary replicas and hence extra consistency maintenance overhead. Most of the consistency maintenance methods depends on either message spreading or structure based for update message propagation without considering file replication dynamism, leading to inefficient file update and outdated file response.
