Object caching and replication are the primary mechanisms for addressing load balancing in peer-to-peer systems. In structured P2P networks, object popularity compounds the challenge as both the request and forwarding loads increase for the nodes responsible for high-demand objects. To balance loads across P2P networks, the authors propose a method for dynamically updating routing tables at peer nodes that redirects forwarding traffic to nodes in the same neighborhoods as those with popular objects.
