Overlay gossiping

Meng How Lim
A new Peer-to-Peer networking module has been developed by Microsoft. It aims to reduce traffic and processing overheads of the Internet by leveraging high performance resources at end hosts within its private networks. Currently, a set of API is available for Peer-to-Peer application developer. Essentially, it is an overlay routing based on gossiping protocol. During last summer, I was working on a DLL to match this API to an existing Peer-to-Peer web caching application. In this talk, I would like to give an introduction to Peer-to-Peer Networking, illustrate how it works and follow by some test results of my implementation.
