Continuous Gossip-Based Aggregation through Dynamic Information Aging

Vitaliy Rapp, Kalman Graffi
2013 2013 22nd International Conference on Computer Communication and Networks (ICCCN)  
In contrast to this approach, we present in this paper a continuous, epoch-less approach which considers fresh local values in every round of the gossip-based aggregation.  ...  Long epochs result in precise estimations based on old measurements and short epochs result in imprecise aggregated estimations.  ...  Metric and node count data are packed into the same message during the exchange. Such exchange message contains two information parts: a metric aggregation part and a network size estimation part.  ...
