Abstract
This paper is concerned with the e ect of overlay network topology on
the performance of live streaming peer-to-peer systems. The paper focuses
on the evaluation of topologies which are aware of the delays experienced
between di erent peers on the network. Metrics are de ned which assess
the topologies in terms of delay, bandwidth usage and resilience to peer
drop-out. Several topology creation algorithms are tested and the metrics
are measured in a simple simulation testbed. This gives an assessment
of the type of gains which might be expected from locality awareness in
peer-to-peer networks.
Description

This paper creates software models of how P2P network topologies could wire up. It considers the possible strategies such as connecting to close nodes, connecting to random links and so on. Resilience and delay are considered.
