The Internet domains are tied together by service level agreements which are based on various QoS parameters such as delay, jitter, packet-loss rate, throughput and availability. To offer tighter and more comprehensive service level agreements, accurate modeling of IP traffic and its queuing behavior over the entire network domain is necessary. We present a(More)
—We consider buffer management in support of large-scale gossip-based peer-to-peer data dissemination protocols. Coupled with an efficient buffering mechanism, system-wide buffer usage can be optimized while providing reliability and scalability in such protocols. We propose a novel approach, Stepwise Fair-share Buffering, that provides uniform load(More)
An analytical framework is developed for establishing exact performance measures for peer-to-peer (P2P) anti-entropy paradigms used in biologically-inspired epidemic data dissemination. Major benefits of these paradigms are that they are fully distributed , self-organizing, utilize local data only via pair-wise interactions, provide eventual consistency,(More)
—We compare pull and push-based epidemic paradigms for information diffusion in large scale networks. Key benefits of these approaches are that they are fully distributed, utilize local information only via pair-wise interactions, and provide eventual consistency, scalability and communication topology-independence, which make them suitable for peer-to-peer(More)
We propose and design a peer-to-peer system, SeCond, addressing the distribution of large sized content to a large number of end systems in an efficient manner. In contrast to prior work, it employs a self-organizing epidemic dissemination scheme for state propagation of available blocks and initiation of block transmissions. In order to exploit(More)
We consider peer-to-peer anti-entropy paradigms for epidemic information diffusion, namely pull, push and hybrid cases, and provide exact performance measures for them. Major benefits of the proposed epidemic algorithms are that they are fully distributed, utilize local information only via pair-wise interactions, and provide eventual consistency,(More)
Transport level multicast protocols providing reliability and scalability properties are certainly essential building blocks for several distributed group applications. We consider the effect of reliable multicast transport mechanisms on traffic characteristics and hence network performance. Although self-similarity property of unicast traffic, in(More)
