Abstract

At present there are many simulation tools developed in order to simulate a peer-to-peer (P2P) system. All the tools are dedicated to P2P content distribution systems, simulate network systems for measuring the efficiency of the networks, and file sharing systems. In the last few years, steady progress has been made in research on various issues related to peer database systems. However, there is no software tool for evaluating a peer database system in a large P2P network. In this paper, we present a software tool that can simulate a peer database system in a large P2P network. The tool provides different facilities, for example, generates peers, databases with synthetic data, acquaintances, and mappings between peers. The tool also provides a general framework for executing queries and updates in a peer database system.
