Measurement on a Peer-to-Peer Package Management System for Linux Distributions

Jie Yu, Weihua Zhang, Xiaodong Tang, Shasha Li, Qiang Li, and Qingtao Shen
Abstract—Peer-to-Peer(P2P) technique has been successfully used in many applications, especially P2P file sharing and P2P live stream. However, there are very few work that try to employ P2P to improve package management for Linux distributions. In this paper, we first introduce the principle of a P2P package management system and a popular implementation named apt-p2p. Then, we develop a crawler to record the information of a normal peer and a bootstrapping peer in apt-p2p network. We measure and analyze the routing table, database, network traffic and network delay for this package management network. Some interesting and valuable results were found in our measurement and the results shows that it is feasible and reliable to use P2P technique to support distributions package measurement.

Index Terms—DHT, measurement, package, Linux.
