Recently, peer-to-peer (P2P) networks have emerged as an attractive solution to enable large-scale content distribution without requiring major infrastructure investments. While such P2P solutions appear highly beneficial for content providers and end-users, there seems to be a growing concern among Internet Service Providers (ISPs) that now need to support the distribution cost. In this work, we explore the potential impact of future P2P file delivery mechanisms as seen from three different… Expand
Should ISPs fear Peer-to-Peer File Sharing Applications ?
Peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing applications contribute a large fraction of today’s Internet traffic. Several measurement studies have confirmed that P2P traffic is starting to dominate the bandwidthExpand
A context-aware system for efficient peer-to-peer content provision
TLDR
This chapter proposes a context-aware system to support an efficient resource sharing among different HBs, by exploiting P2P approaches and configurations. Expand
Peer-to-peer collaboration in content delivery networks
  • Hugo Dias, R. Marinheiro
  • Computer Science
  • The International Conference on Information Networking 2011 (ICOIN2011)
  • 2011
TLDR
Results show that download speed increases after implementing P2P collaboration on a content delivery scenario, with a strong reduction of data transferred via HTTP servers and an ISP-aware approach reduces inter-ISP traffic, with an increase of download speeds. Expand
Cross-Layer P2P Traffic Engineering in Content-based Networks
TLDR
In order to reduce the P2P traffic load especially over the costly inter-ISP links, an advanced hybrid scheme for peer selections across multi-domains is proposed by promoting cooperation and non-cooperation among adjacent ISPs and an intelligent in-network caching scheme enabled by Information-Centric Networking (ICN).

CAT: A Cost-Aware BitTorrent
TLDR
This paper presents methods to constitute peer-to-peer content distribution networks that realizes lower cost content distribution and a reduction in the amount of inter-ISP traffic and its costs by considering the priority in usage of ISP interconnections in its distribution. Expand
Towards a universal friendly peer-to-peer media streaming: metrics, analysis and explorations
TLDR
This paper provides a framework of evaluating the P2P media streaming application performance from perspectives of all entities involved, that is ISP, ICP and end users, and suggests many avenues for addressing the emerging tensions between P1P application and network operators. Expand
A Survey of P2P Traffic Management Approaches: Best Practices and Future Directions
Over the last decade, we have witnessed the tremendous growth of peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing traffic. Built as overlays on top of the existing Internet infrastructure, P2P applications haveExpand
P2P Infrastructure for Content Distribution
TLDR
Locaware leverages inherent properties of P2P file sharing and performs locality-aware index caching and supports keyword queries which are the most common in this context, and PetalUp-CDN brings scalability and adaptability under massive and variable scales while the maintenance protocols provide high robustness under churn.

Analyzing peer-to-peer traffic across large networks
  • S. Sen, Jia Wang
  • Computer Science
  • IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking
  • 2004
TLDR
The high volume and good stability properties of P2P traffic suggests that the P1P workload is a good candidate for being managed via application-specific layer-3 traffic engineering in an ISP's network. Expand
An analysis of Internet content delivery systems
TLDR
This paper examines content delivery from the point of view of four content delivery systems: HTTP web traffic, the Akamai content delivery network, and Kazaa and Gnutella peer-to-peer file sharing traffic. Expand
A methodology for workload characterization of file-sharing peer-to-peer networks
TLDR
This article presents a novel workload characterization methodology for P2P networks, which account for the main features of these networks, and validate the methodology through the characterization of the Gnutella network, through which it is able to characterize file-sharing patterns, the availability of the servents, and the search patterns. Expand
Measurement study of peer-to-peer file sharing systems
TLDR
This measurement study seeks to precisely characterize the population of end-user hosts that participate in Napster and Gnutella, and shows that there is significant heterogeneity and lack of cooperation across peers participating in these systems. Expand
Transport layer identification of P2P traffic
TLDR
This paper develops a systematic methodology to identify P2P flows at the transport layer, i.e., based on connection patterns of P1P networks, and without relying on packet payload, and believes it is the first method for characterizing P2p traffic using only knowledge of network dynamics rather than any user payload.

Mapping the Gnutella Network: Macroscopic Properties of Large-Scale Peer-to-Peer Systems
TLDR
The Gnutella virtual network topology does not match well the underlying Internet topology, hence leading to ineffective use of the physical networking infrastructure and the aggregated volume of generated traffic is estimated. Expand

  • 2nd IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster Computing and the Grid (CCGRID'02)
  • 2002
TLDR
This paper study's the traffic patterns of Gnutella, a popular large-scale peer-to-peer system, and shows that traffic patterns are very bursty even over several time scales, and proposes simple GNutella caching mechanisms that cache query responses. Expand
Measurement, modeling, and analysis of a peer-to-peer file-sharing workload
TLDR
Unlike the Web, whose workload is driven by document change, it is demonstrated that clients' fetch-at-most-once behavior, the creation of new objects, and the addition of new clients to the system are the primary forces that drive multimedia workloads such as Kazaa. Expand
Network coding for large scale content distribution
TLDR
It is demonstrated through simulations of scenarios of practical interest that the expected file download time improves by more than 20-30% with network coding compared to coding at the server only and, byMore than 2-3 times compared to sending unencoded information. Expand
Availability and locality measurements of peer-to-peer file systems
TLDR
The first study of the locality of files stored and transferred among peers in Napster and Gnutella over month-long periods suggests that caches of the most popular songs would increase performance of the system. Expand
