A Multi-Dimensional Query Scheme in Structured Overlays
Structured peer-to-peer (P2P) systems are creating a large proportion of network traffic in today’s Internet. Peer-to-peer systems enable access to data spread over an extremely large number of machines. A P2P system typically involves thousands or millions of live peers in the network. Multi-dimensional data indexing has received much attention in a centralized database. In this paper, we propose and evaluate a multi-dimensional searching scheme in structured P2P networks. We present the design and implementation of a peer-to-peer index service for high dimensional data that is capable of handling complex queries. We design a VibIndex scheme in structured P2P overlay networks. We analyze this scheme’s performance and present simulation results. Our simulation results demonstrated the benefits of the proposed system and show that the approach is able to search efficiently.
