SURVEY OF SEARCH AND REPLICATION SCHEMES IN UNSTRUCTURED P2P NETWORKS

SABU M THAMPI

Abstract


P2P computing lifts taxing issues in various areas of computer science. The largely used decentralized unstructured P2P systems are ad hoc in nature and present a number of research challenges. In this paper, we provide a comprehensive survey of various state-of-the-art search and replication schemes for unstructured P2P networks. The classifications of search and replication techniques and their advantages and disadvantages are briefly explained. Finally, the various issues on search and replication for unstructured P2P networks are discussed.
