Provides a comprehensive overview of the performance of peer-to-peer systems
Details a clear benchmarking process, by which P2P systems may be compared
Presents new results in the areas of performance modeling and analysis of peer-to-peer systems, and peer-to-peer applications, such as video streaming and games
Peer-to-peer systems are now widely used and have become the focus of
attention for many researchers over the past decade. A number of algorithms for decentralized search, content distribution, and media streaming have been developed.
This book provides fundamental concepts for the benchmarking of those
algorithms in peer-to-peer systems. It also contains a collection of
characteristic benchmarking results. The chapters of the book have been
organized in three topical sections on: Fundamentals of Benchmarking in P2P Systems; Synthetic Benchmarks for Peer-to-Peer Systems; and Application Benchmarks for Peer-to-Peer Systems. They are preceded by a detailed introduction to the subject.
