In this paper, we examine the behavior of the Gnutella peer-to-peer file sharing network and propose a protocol modification to improve its performance. Gnutella exhibits sub-optimal performance in terms of message latency because its overlay topology does not match the underlying physical network. In order to characterize Gnutella's performance, we modified an existing Gnutella simulation framework developed for the ns-2 network simulator to gather information about query and query hit… CONTINUE READING
