Xunlei: Peer-Assisted Download Acceleration on a Massive Scale

  title={Xunlei: Peer-Assisted Download Acceleration on a Massive Scale},
  author={Prithula Dhungel and Keith W. Ross and Moritz Steiner and Ye Tian and Xiaojun Hei},
We take a close look at Xunlei, an enormously popular download acceleration application in China. Xunlei forms a complex ecosystem, with Xunlei peers extensively interacting with independent HTTP and FTP servers, cyberlockers (such as megaupload and hotfile), the BitTorrent and eDonkey file-sharing systems, as well as with other Xunlei peers. After performing a protocol analysis on Xunlei, we develop a comprehensive measurement infrastructure, enabling us to gain new insights into the scale of… CONTINUE READING
