This paper presents an application of the Fluid Stochastic Petri Net (FSPN) formalism for the analysis of the transfer time distribution in peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing applications. The transfer of the resource follows a successful search; the transfer time is mainly dominated by network characteristics, application characteristics, resource characteristics, and user behavior. The proposed analytical modeling technique accounts all these aspects and provides an estimation of the transfer time distribution after the search for a given resource has been performed. Some numerical results are presented to prove the flexibility and the potential of the proposed technique.

Abstract

This paper presents an application of the Fluid Stochastic Petri Net (FSPN) formalism for the analysis of the transfer time distribution in peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing applications. The transfer of the resource follows a successful search; the transfer time is mainly dominated by network characteristics, application characteristics, resource characteristics, and user behavior. The proposed analytical modeling technique accounts all these aspects and provides an estimation of the transfer time distribution after the search for a given resource has been performed. Some numerical results are presented to prove the flexibility and the potential of the proposed technique.
