Locaware: Index Caching in Unstructured P2P-file Sharing Systems


Though widely deployed for file-sharing, unstructured P2P systems aggressively exploit network resources as they grow in popularity. The P2P traffic is the leading consumer of bandwidth, mainly due to search inefficiency, as well as to large data transfers over long distances. This critical issue may compromise the benefits of such systems by drastically limiting their scalability. In order to reduce the P2P redundant traffic, we propose Locaware, which performs index caching while supporting keyword search. Locaware aims at reducing the network load by directing queries to available nearby results. For this purpose, Locaware leverages natural file replication and uses topological information in terms of file physical distribution.
