Abstract

Publish/Subscribe systems have become a prevalent model for delivering data from producers (publishers) to consumers (subscribers) distributed across wide-area networks while decoupling the publishers and the subscribers from each other. In this paper we present Meghdoot, which adapts content-based publish/subscribe systems to Distributed Hash Table based P2P networks in order to provide scalable content delivery mechanisms while maintaining the decoupling between the publishers and the subscribers. Meghdoot is designed to adapt to highly skewed data sets, which is typical of real applications. The experimental results demonstrate that Meghdoot balances the load among the peers and the design scales well with increasing number of peers, subscriptions and events.
