Simulating BitTorrent
Responsible organisation
2008 (English)Conference paper, (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

IP Television (IPTV) and other media distribution applications are expected to be one of the next Internet killer applications. One indication of this is the corporate backing that the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) is getting. However, the bandwidth utilization of these applications is still an issue, as the volume of multimedia grows due to larger image resolution and higher bitrate audio. One way of managing this increase in bandwidth requirements is to use existing endhost bandwidth to decrease the load on the content server in a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) fashion. One of the most successful P2P applications is BitTorrent (BT), a swarming file transfer system. This paper presents an implementation of a BT simulator intended for future use in investigating modifications to the BT system to provide streaming media capabilities. The simulator is validated against real-world measurements and a brief performance analysis is provided.
