Application-layer peer-to-peer (P2P) networks are considered to be the most important development for next-generation Internet infrastructure. For these systems to be effective, load balancing among the peers is critical. Most structured P2P systems rely on ID-space partitioning schemes to solve the load imbalance problem and have been known to result in an imbalance factor of ominus(logN) in the zone sizes. This paper makes two contributions. First, we propose addressing the virtual-server… CONTINUE READING
