Leveraging Heterogeneity Make Resource Location Efficient in Peer-to-Peer Networks
Although the original intent of the peer-to-peer (P2P) concept is to treat each participant equally, the heterogeneity is an inherent characteristic of P2P systems. In this paper, according to the previous researches in P2P resource sharing networks, we first conclude and classify the heterogeneity in P2P networks, and then analyze each type of P2P systems that utilize heterogeneity in P2P network. The above analysis and conclusion will become a good guidance to design new resource locating algorithm which takes advantage of heterogeneity in P2P networks.
