PlanetP: Using Gossiping to Build Content Addressable Peer-to-Peer Information Sharing Communities
Abstract. We present PlanetP, a peer-to-peer (P2P) content search and retrieval infrastructure targeting communities wishing to share large sets of text documents. P2P computing is an attractive model for information sharing between ad hoc groups of users because of its low cost of entry and explicit model for resource scaling. As communities grow, however, a key challenge becomes finding relevant information. To address this challenge, our design centers around indexing, content search, and retrieval rather than scalable name-based object location, which has been the focus of recent P2P systems. PlanetP takes the novel approach of replicating the global directory and a compact summary index at every peer using gossiping. PlanetP then leverages this information to approximate a state-of-the-art document ranking algorithm to help users locate relevant information within the large communal data set. Using a prototype implementation together with simulation, we show: (i) it is possible t...
