Abstract

A peer-topeer(P2P) system consists of a decentralized, distributed network of nodes that is capable of sharing resources and services without centralized supervision. A major functionality in P2P networks is locating resources or services present on remote nodes. Traditional techniques for resource discovery include blind searches among the nodes using query flooding, or, positioning resources strategically to enable rapid lookup using distributed hash tables. In this paper, we propose a mobile agent based referral service that directs resources queries intelligently towards the nodes possessing the resource. The mobile agents adaptively learn paths called trails within the P2P network to enable rapid location of resources. Preliminary results of our algorithm demonstrate that the agent based technique performs favorably with existing P2P resource discovery protocols.
