AnySee: Peer-to-Peer Live Streaming
— Efficient and scalable live-streaming overlay construction has become a hot topic recently. In order to improve the performance metrics, such as startup delay, source-to-end delay, and playback continuity, most previous studies focused on intra-overlay optimization. Such approaches have drawbacks including low resource utilization, high startup and source-to-end delay, and unreasonable resource assignment in global P2P networks. Anysee is a peer-to-peer live streaming system and adopts an inter-overlay optimization scheme, in which resources can join multiple overlays, so as to (1) improve global resource utilization and distribute traffic to all physical links evenly; (2) assign resources based on their locality and delay; (3) guarantee streaming service quality by using the nearest peers, even when such peers might belong to different overlays; and (4) balance the load among the group members. We compare the performance of our design with existing approaches based on comprehensiv...
