Routing Performance in a Hierarchical DHT-based Overlay Network
The scalability properties of DHT based overlay networks is considered satisfactory. However, in large scale systems this might still cause a problem since they have a logarithmic complexity depending. Further, they only provide a one dimensional structure and do not make use on inherent clustering properties of some applications (e.g. P2PVoIP or locality aware overlays). Thus, structures based on a hierarchical approach can have performance as well as structural advantages. In this paper, a generic hierarchical architecture based on super-peers is presented where a peer ID is composed by a Prefix ID and a Suffix ID. Prefix ID is only routed at the super-peer level and the Suffix ID at the peer level. We specifically analyse the Routing Performance of this approach within the context of two specific overlays, viz. CAN and Kademlia.
