Peer-to-Peer Traces

Edonkey traces

These traces have been collected from a fake client, connecting to other clients, and asking for their lists of files. This was possible in 2004, but not anymore. They have been anonymised and converted to a common format.

The traces:

Downloads

When analysing this trace, we strongly suggest to:

An finally, a small bonus: settings.txt shows upload and download settings of MLdonkey clients, in kB/s (0 meaning unlimited). Free-riders would be those who set their upload to 1, the minimum value, they only represent 3% of the total...and those who set their upload to unlimited are also 3% !!

Internet Round-Trip Traces

I measured some latencies on the Internet in 2005. The software was installed on many home computers, that were working with other home computers. Latencies were measured as the best response time (in milliseconds) among a given number of either TCP or UDP requests. Unfortunately, there are very few triangles (three computers pinging each others), but it might still be of some use to some researchers.

The format is: source_IP destination_IP nbr_pings best_rtt
