A Case for Locally-Organized Peer-to-Peer Lookup Services

Ganesan, Prasanna and Sun, Qixiang and GArcia-Molina, Hector (2002) A Case for Locally-Organized Peer-to-Peer Lookup Services. Technical Report. Stanford.




Distributed lookup services have predominantly fallen into one of two categories: Gnutella-based systems and DHTs. In this paper, we identify a set of applications for P2P lookup services, and analyze each of their requirements along a commonly-chosen set of dimensions. We show that neither Gnutella nor DHTs may provide the desired trade-offs among these dimensions. We go on to demonstrate a locally-organized P2P lookup service that matches more closely with these application requirements.
