Peer-to-Peer Systems [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
DefinitionThe term peer to peer denotes a class of distributed system architectures, that is, a way of structuring and organizing the work of several computers that communicate through a network.In a peer to peer system, each computer that participates in the system has some kind of resource (data, computing capacity, disk space, algorithms, etc.) that it offers to the other users of the system. In a multimedia peer to peer system, the most common resource is constituted by data files. A computer needing a particular file or algorithm will send a request for it to all or some of the participants of the system (the details of how this happens depend on the specific architectural details of the systems, and will be debated shortly). The participants that have that resource available will answer, possibly with some additional information about the computer on which the resource is located, such as its computing power, network bandwidth, work load at the moment, etc. Based on thi ...
