Project Proxy/Cache: Eliminating Redundancy-Internet's Number One Enemy
Abstract and Figures
Peer-to-Peer (P2P) currently represents the single largest portion of Internet's traffic. It is well known that the redundancy rate in P2P networks is very high; in fact redundancy is the main concept behind P2P. Th is paper will show how much traffic P2P generates and how much of it is redundant. The popularity distribution in P2P networks will be studied. Thru it, it will be shown that caching of P2P data is viable. Based on these calculations we present how much disk space is required for what hit percentage. A working proof-of-concept P2P Pro xy/ Cache will be presented that was shown to be able to serve a segment of several thousand users on commodity PC hardware. The second biggest portion of Internet traffic is streamed video, mostly also because of redundancy. Therefore we developed a truly generic Flash caching mechanis m that will be also presented in this paper.
