Abstract: We argue the case for a new paradigm for architecting structured P2P overlaynetworks, coined AESOP. AESOP consists of 3 layers: (i) an architecture, PLANES, that ensures significant performance speedups, assuming knowledge of altruistic peers; (ii) an accounting/auditing layer, AltSeAl, that identifies and validates altruistic peers; and (iii) SeAledPLANES, a layer that facilitates the coordination/collaboration of the previous two components. We briefly present these components along with experimental and analytical data of the promised significant performance gains and the related overhead. In light of these very encouraging results, we put this three-layer architecture paradigm forth as the way to structure the P2P overlaynetworks of the future.
Abstract: Service Oriented Computing and its most famous implementation technology Web Services (WS) are becoming an important enabler of networked business models. Discovery mechanisms are a critical factor to the overall utility of Web Services. So far, discovery mechanisms based on the UDDI standard rely on many centralized and area-specific directories, which poses information stress problems such as performance bottlenecks and fault tolerance. In this context, decentralized approaches based on PeertoPeeroverlaynetworks have been proposed by many researchers as a solution. In this paper, we propose a new structured P2P overlay network infrastructure designed for Web Services Discovery. We present theoretical analysis backed up by experimental results, showing that the proposed solution outperforms popular decentralized infrastructures for web discovery, Chord (and some of its successors), BATON (and itĘs successor) and Skip-Graphs.
Abstract: The proliferation of peertopeer
(P2P) systems has come with various
compelling applications including file sharing based on distributed
hash tables (DHTs) or other kinds of overlaynetworks.
Searching the content of files (especially Web Search) requires
querying with scoring and ranking. Existing approaches
have no way of taking into account the correlation between
the keywords in the query. This paper presents our solution
that incorporates the queries and behavior of the users in the P2P
network such that interesting correlations can be inferred.
Abstract: Our position is that a key to research efforts on ensuring high
performance in very large scale sharing networks is the idea of
volunteering; recognizing that such networks are comprised of
largely heterogeneous nodes in terms of their capacity and
behaviour, and that, in many real-world manifestations, a few
nodes carry the bulk of the request service load. In this paper we
outline how we employ volunteering as the basic idea using
which we develop altruism-endowed self-organizing sharing
networksto help solve two open problems in large-scale peer-topeernetworks: (i) to develop an overlaytopology structure that
enjoys better performance than DHT-structured networks and,
specifically, to offer O(log log N) routing performance in a
network of N nodes, instead of O(log N), and (ii) to efficiently
process complex queries and range queries, in particular.
