Peer-to-peer systems generate a major fraction of the current internet traffic, and significantly increase the load on ISP networks and the cost of running and connecting customer networks to the internet. It mitigates negative impacts, several previous papers within the literature have proposed caching of P2P traffic, but very few have considered designing a caching system to actually do it. Caching P2P traffic is more complex than caching other internet traffic and needs several new algorithms and storage systems. The paper presents the design and evaluation of an entire, running, and proxy cache for P2P traffic, referred to as pCache.
