Measuring BitTorrent swarms beyond reach

  author={Masahiro Yoshida and Akihiro Nakao},

BitTorrent is one of the most popular P2P file sharing applications in the world. Each BitTorrent network is called a swarm and millions of peers may join multiple swarms. However, there are many unreachable peers (NATed, Fire-Walled, or inactive at the time of the measurement) in each swarm. Due to this unreachable peers problem, the existing work can measure only a part of the entire peers in a swarm. In this paper, we propose an improved measurement method for BitTorrent swarms that many… CONTINUE READING
