Randomized rumor spreading was recently shown to be a very efficient mechanism to spread information in preferential attachment networks. Most interesting from the algorithm design point of view was the observation that the asymptotic run-time drops when memory is used to avoid re-contacting neighbors within a small number of rounds. In this experimental investigation, we confirm that a small amount of memory indeed reduces the run-time of the protocol even for small network sizes. We observedoi:10.1007/978-3-642-34862-4_12 fatcat:qlozimt5srdr5m7on4adeactpa
