A parallel downloading algorithm for redundant networks
Li, Ke, Zhou, Wanlei, Yu, Shui and Dai, Bo 2007, A parallel downloading algorithm for redundant networks, in CIT 2007 : proceedings : 7th IEEE International Conference on Computer and Information Technology : 16-19 October, 2007, Aizu-Wakamatsu City, Fukushima, Japan, IEEE Computer Society, Los Alamitos, Calif., pp. 177-182.
In this paper, we study the downloading mechanism of BitTorrent (or BT), a P2P based popular and convenient parallel downloading software tool, point out some of its limitations, and propose an algorithm to improve its performance. In particular, we address the limitations of BT by using neighbours in P2P networks to resolve the redundant copies problem and to optimise the downloading speed. Our preliminary experiments show that the proposed enhancement algorithm works well.
