Introduction

The locality in BitTorrent refers to how much disparity exists in swarm dynamics from the spatial and temporal perspectives. According to [1], 30 observed for more than 45 peers are biased to local peers. [2] found that (1) substantial BitTorrent traffic does not reach higher-tier ISPs, and (2) BitTorrent’s temporal usage patterns vary in a diurnal fashion.
