Peer-to-Peer (P2P)-Based Network Management

  • Lisandro Zambenedetti Granville


Peer-to-peer (P2P) technologies have enabled the development and successful deployment of next-generation applications on top of the Internet. File sharing, collaborative work, and multimedia content distribution are examples of application whose success is tightly associated with the employment of P2P technologies. Network management can benefit from P2P technologies as well. For example, the long-studied issue of decentralized network management can incorporate the intrinsic distributed nature of P2P application to deliver interdomain collaborative management. In this chapter, we discuss how the network management discipline can use P2P technologies to deliver new management solutions.
