Multicast file sharing tool: first generation one-to-many peer-to-peer computing
2003 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

Transfers of large files, such as software updates or new releases of free operating systems, to multiple simultaneous recipients on the Internet can cause network congestion and render the servers unreachable. The problem lies in all receivers making individual retrieval efforts, each that generate a separate stream across the network from the server. One solution can be to multicast the data, as all receivers then can take advantage of, or share, a single data stream. An issue that must be solved in such multicast based file distribution is achieving reliability while avoiding implosion caused by the receivers. The prototype Multicast File Sharing Tool protocol uses transfers in multiple layers to do data distribution without a feedback channel to heterogeneous receivers, and employs a scalable resource discovery scheme to do transfer negotiation. Analysis of the protocol gives that the transfers are scalable to the same extent as multicast is. The Multicast File Sharing Tool shows that multicast is a viable technique to do one-to-many transfers of large data sets over a network.
