Caching collaboration and cache allocation in peer-to-peer video systems
Providing scalable video services in a peer-to-peer (P2P) environment is challenging. Since videos are typically large and require high communication bandwidth for delivery, many peers may be unwilling to cache them in whole to serve others. In this paper, we address two fundamental research problems in providing scalable P2P video services: (1) how a host can find enough video pieces, which may scatter among the whole system, to assemble a complete video; and (2) given a limited buffer size, what part of a video a host should cache and what existing data should be expunged to make necessary space. We address these problems with two new ideas: Cell caching collaboration and Controlled Inverse Proportional (CIP) cache allocation. The Cell concept allows cost-effective caching collaboration in a fully distributed environment and can dramatically reduce video lookup cost. On the other hand, CIP cache allocation challenges the conventional caching wisdom by caching unpopular videos in hig...
