AlvisP2P: scalable peer-to-peer text retrieval in a structured P2P network
In this paper we present the AlvisP2P IR engine, which enables efficient retrieval with multi-keyword queries from a global document collection available in a P2P network. In such a network, each peer publishes its local index and invests a part of its local computing resources (storage, CPU, bandwidth) to maintain a fraction of a global P2P index. This investment is rewarded by the network-wide accessibility of the local documents via the global search facility. The AlvisP2P engine uses an optimized overlay network and relies on novel indexing/retrieval mechanisms that ensure low bandwidth consumption, thus enabling unlimited network growth. Our demonstration shows how an easy-to-install AlvisP2P client can be used to join an existing P2P network, index local (text or even multimedia) documents with collectionspecific indexing mechanisms, and control access rights to them.
