Delay-optimized path in peer-to-peer networks
MetadataShow full item record
Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networks are popular in sharing multimedia resources such as video, audio and images. Its popularity has attracted very many users thus increasing data streaming along a congested path. The increased sharing of the resources in the network has caused delays making the network resource sharing inefficient. This paper presents a delay-optimized path algorithm that increases data flow within the network among the peers and utilizes the network resources for effective and efficient streaming of data. We consider a distributed search for peer nodes with multi-peer participation in both searching and initiating resource transmission within the network. The resource streaming across the peer network is controlled by the resource function. Single peer initiated searching is also considered where a single peer node initiates the resource search process. Our analysis shows that the nature of growth of the network is linear.
