We consider five different peer-to-peer file sharing systems with two chunks, with the aim of finding chunk selection algorithms that have provably stable performance with any input rate and assuming non-altruistic peers who leave the system immediately after downloading the second chunk. We show that many algorithms that first looked promising lead to unstable or oscillating behavior. However, we end up with a system with desirable properties. Most of our rigorous results concern the… CONTINUE READING
