Improving Traffic Locality in BitTorrent via Biased Neighbor Selection

R. Bindal, Pei Cao, W. Chan, J. Medved, G. Suwala, T. Bates, A. Zhang
26th IEEE International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS'06)  
In this paper, we examine a new approach to enhance BitTorrent traffic locality, biased neighbor selection, in which a peer chooses the majority, but not all, of its neighbors from peers within the same  ...  Using simulations, we show that biased neighbor selection maintains the nearly optimal performance of BitTorrent in a variety of environments, and fundamentally reduces the cross-ISP traffic by stopping  ...  Thus, the goal of our study is to find neighbor selection policies that improve intra-ISP traffic locality while preserving the near-optimal performance of BitTorrent.  ...

On Improving Network Locality in BitTorrent-Like Systems [chapter]

Yun-Chiu Ching, Ching-Hsien Hsu, Kuan-Ching Li
2009 Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering  
In peer collaboration strategy, a peer chooses most of its neighbors from internal ISP as itself, and only a few from external ISPs for reducing transfer of cross-ISP by biased neighbor selection.  ...  ISPs often control BitTorrent traffic by bandwidth limiting for reducing cross-ISP traffic.  ...  Moreover, the biased neighbor selection is key to the success of reduces cross-ISP traffic and rely on Bit-Torrent adopts the local rarest first (LRF) algorithm [11, 19] as the piece selection strategy  ...

Enhancing Peer-to-Peer Traffic Locality through Selective Tracker Blocking [chapter]

Haiyang Wang, Feng Wang, Jiangchuan Liu
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To this end, we model the tracker blocking problem coherently with torrent's availability, and address it through a novel selective tracker blocking algorithm, which iteratively improves traffic locality  ...  Unfortunately, existing proposals generally require that an ISP control the neighbor selection of most peers, which is often not practical in a real-world deployment given there are noncooperative trackers  ...  This method proposes to manipulate the neighbor selection of peers via a biased tracker deployment.  ...

In contrast, we propose a lightweight method that improves the locality of active swarms by 6% by suggesting geographically close peers with the Peer Exchange Protocol (PEX), without any modifications  ...  An improvement of locality not only benefits the ISPs by reducing network transit cost, it also reduces the traffic over long-distance connections, which delays the need to expand the infrastructure, easing  ...  The selection of neighbors is then biased to prefer nearby peers.  ...
