This study addresses the problem of discovering frequent items in unstructured P2P networks. We propose a fully distributed Protocol for Frequent Item set Discovery (ProFID) where the result is produced at every peer. We also propose a practical rule for convergence of the algorithm. Finally, we evaluate the efficiency of our approach through an extensive simulation study on PeerSim.
