Overlay networks have been viewed as one of promising intermediary solutions to provide a supplement with strengthened performance to the existing “best efforts” Internet. Previous researches have shown that overlays constructed taking into consideration of the underlying network topology information perform better than those oblivious to those information. In this paper, we first propose a novel heuristic algorithm to solve the provider-independent overlay construction issue given accurate… CONTINUE READING
