An important problem in unstructured peer-to-peer (P2P) networks is the efficient content-based retrieval of documents shared by other peers. However, existing searching mechanisms are not scaling well because they are either based on the idea of flooding the network with queries or because they require some form of global knowledge. We propose the Intelligent Search Mechanism (ISM) which is an efficient, scalable yet simple mechanism for improving the information retrieval problem in P2P… CONTINUE READING
