Analysis of the probability of channel satisfactory state in P2P live streaming systems
In this paper a model based on user behaviour of P2P live streaming systems was developed in order to analyse one of the key QoS parameter of such systems, i.e. the probability of channel-satisfactory state, the impact of upload bandwidths and channels’ popularity on the probability of channel-satisfactory state was also analysed. Results obtained have shown that channels with high number of patronising peers achieve satisfactory state easily while channels with low number of peers hardly attain satisfactory state. This called for the need to design a framework or incentive scheme for effective functionality of P2P live streaming systems which will favour all channels regardless of their popularities.
