An Open Tracing System for P2P File Sharing Systems

Danny Hughes, James Walkerdine, Kevin Lee
2007 Second International Conference on Internet and Web Applications and Services (ICIW'07)  
This paper describes the Open P2P tracing system which aims to improve the research community's understanding of P2P file sharing systems by providing continuous and up-todate traffic data which is anonymized  ...  It is our hope that this open data set will grow over time into a resource capable of exposing trends in P2P network usage and promote research into the socio-technical factors that drive user behaviour  ...  By connecting to the network as a Gnutella 'ultra-peer', a Direct Connect 'hub' or eDonkey 'server', a greater proportion of traffic can be captured using passive application-level monitoring.  ...
