This paper presents mDHT, a novel architectural enhancement to DHT using multicast service discovery. In mDHT, a group of host computers in a subnet participate in a DHT overlay as a single node. A query is routed from subnet to subnet until it reaches the final destination subnet, wher e it is resolved among the hosts using link-local multicast. Und er a reasonable deployment assumption, mDHT offers many benefit s over standard DHTs, such as locality, easy bootstrapping, h igh availability… CONTINUE READING
