Findings from National Taiwan University of Science and Technology Yields New Data on Cloning

May 30, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Health & Medicine Week -- Research findings on Cloning are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting from Taipei, Taiwan, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Peer-to-peer (P2P) networks feature resource sharing in a distributed network environment. How to efficiently find out target objects (i.e., data, file, etc.) distributed in a P2P network is the remarkable process for resource sharing."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, "The searching efficiency highly depends on the popularity of the target object. However, the popularity varies since peer joining or leaving a P2P network is very dynamic. Many researches aimed at finding a good searching scheme in such a variable environment with a better trade-off among long searching time, a large amount of duplicated query messages and a low successful search hit rate. In this paper, we propose a Cloning Random Walker assisted by Weakly Connected Dominating Set (CloneRW+WCDS) method to adaptively locate the target object in a P2P network."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Our simulation results also depict that our proposed scheme can perform a better trade-off among the search delay, message overhead per hit and success rate while conducting resource searching in a P2P network."
