Improvement of BitTorrent Performance and Inter-domain Traffic by Inserting ISP-Owned Peers

  title={Improvement of BitTorrent Performance and Inter-domain Traffic by Inserting ISP-Owned Peers},
  author={Ioanna Papafili and Sergios Soursos and George D. Stamoulis},
Large volumes of Internet traffic are nowadays generated by BitTorrent. In this article, we propose the insertion of high-bandwidth ISPowned peers as an optimization approach to improve end-users’ performance and reduce inter-domain traffic. An ISP-owned peer participates in BitTorrent swarms in order to download chunks and subsequently serve regular peers. We have run simulations on the ns-2 platform showing that our approach results in considerable reduction of both inter-domain traffic and… CONTINUE READING
