A Model for Analyzing Delay in Mesh-Based P2P Streaming Networks
Though some algorithms about the minimum delay have been designed, there is no actual algorithm which could be used in a Mesh-based P2P streaming system without a set of specified neighbors as we know. The characters of delay in Mesh-based P2P streaming network need to be understood more thoroughly. Using capabilities model to reflect the relationship between nodes and chunks, we model the delay character in P2P streaming system to explain the tradeoff between delay and playback quality. Finally, we use a holes and repair approach to give a serial of principles about how to make the delay to be low enough with a high quality as a direction for future design of algorithm.
