The Gnutella protocol requires peers to broadcast messages to their neighbors when they search files. The message passing generates a lot of traffic in the network, which degrades the quality of service. We propose the new method to optimize the speed of search and to improve the quality of service in a Gnutella based peer-to-peer environment with using semantic routing and priority of nodes. Once peers generate their "friends lists", they use these lists to route queries in the network. This helps to reduce the search time and to decrease the network traffic by minimizing the number of messages circulating in the system as compared to standard Gnutella

Peer-to-peer (P2P) networks are beginning to form the infrastructure of future applications. Computers are organized in P2P overlay networks to facilitate search queries with reasonable cost. So, scalability is a major aim in design of P2P networks. In this paper, to obtain a high factor of scalability, we partition network search space using a consistent static shared upper ontology. We name our approach semantic partition tree (SPT). All resources and queries are annotated using the upper ontology and queries are semantically routed in the overlay network. Also, each node indexes addresses of other nodes that possess contents expressible by the concept it maintains. So, our approach can be...

Peer-to-peer (P2P) networks are beginning to form the infrastructure of future applications. Heavy network traffic limits the scalability of P2P networks. Indexing is a method to reduce this traffic. But indexes tend to become large with the growth of the network. Also, limiting the size of these indexes causes loss of indexing information. In this paper we introduce a novel ontology based index (OI) which limits the size of the indexes without sacrificing indexing information. We show that the method can be employed by many P2P networks. The OI sits on top of routing and maintenance modules of a P2P network and enhances it. The OI prunes branches of search trees which have no chance to...
