P2P networks constitute the foundation for many scalable and fault-tolerant applications. These networks may consist of millions of peers due to their decentralized design. While each peer advertises the same service interface, the actual data provided by common large-scale P2P applications often yields an imbalance, i.e., particular peer subsets are more frequently contacted than the rest of the overlay. Such subsets may refer to peers that replicate critical or popular content. © 2016 IEEE.
