BitTorrent is undoubtedly the most popular P2P file sharing application on today's Internet. The widespread popularity of BitTorrent has attracted a great deal of attention from networking researchers who conducted various performance studies on it. This paper presents a comprehensive survey of analytical performance modeling techniques for BitTorrent networks. The performance models examined in this study include deterministic models, Markov chain models, fluid flow models, and queuing network

Furthermore, a comparative analysis is conducted on those modeling techniques in the aspects of complexity, accuracy, extensibility, and scalability.
