Epidemic-Style Management of Semantic Overlays for Content-Based Searching
A lot of recent research on content-based P2P searching for file-sharing applications has focused on exploiting semantic relations between peers to facilitate searching. To the best of our knowledge, all methods proposed to date suggest reactive ways to seize peers’ semantic relations. That is, they rely on the usage of the underlying search mechanism, and infer semantic relations based on the queries placed and the corresponding replies received. In this paper we follow a different approach, proposing a proactive method to build a semantic overlay. Our method is based on an epidemic protocol that clusters peers with similar content. It is worth noting that this peer clustering is done in a completely implicit way, that is, without requiring the user to specify his preferences or to characterize the content of files he shares.
