Fairness , incentives and performance in peer-to-peer networks

  title={Fairness , incentives and performance in peer-to-peer networks},
  author={Gustavo de Veciana and Xiangying Yang},
In this paper we consider the sensitivity of the ‘service capacity’ of peer to peer (P2P) file sharing applications to demands, user cooperation, and providing incentives for cooperation through fairness guarantees. To do so we propose models for both the steady state performance and the transient characteristics of the system. Both are of interest since, from the perspective of a given file, demands are prone to be initially bursty, e.g., flash crowds, and subsequently be roughly ‘stationary… CONTINUE READING
