Abstract

Decentralized nature of Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networks has proven to be efficient and effective in providing scalable solutions for the implementation of large-scale distributed systems. However, this decentralized nature of P2P networks also poses significant challenges in resource discovery and management. To efficiently deploy and manage P2P networks, system administrators may need to identify the aggregate capabilities of all the nodes in the system from a global perspective. For example, for efficient scheduling of jobs, they may need to locate the least loaded nodes in the system. To execute such global functions which result in the aggregate capabilities of nodes, P2P systems require dec..
