Measurement-Based Optimization Techniques for Bandwidth-Demanding Peer-to-Peer Systems
— Measurement-based optimization is one important strategy to improve the performance of bandwidth-demanding peer-to-peer systems. However, to date, we have little quantitative knowledge of how well basic light-weight measurement-based techniques such as RTT probing, 10KB TCP probing, and bottleneck bandwidth probing may work in practice in the peerto-peer environment. By conducting trace-based analyses, we find that the basic techniques can help achieve 40 to 50% optimal performance. To deepen our understanding, we analyze some of the intrinsic properties of these techniques. Our analyses reveal the inherent difficulty of the peer selection problem due to the extreme heterogeneity in the peer-to-peer environment, and that the basic techniques are limited because their primary strength lies in eliminating the low-performance peers rather than reliably identifying the best-performing one. However, our analyses also reveal two key insights that can potentially be exploited by applica...
