Locality-based peer selection paradigms have been proposed recently based on cooperation between peer-to-peer (P2P) service providers, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and end users in order to achieve efficient resource utilization by P2P traffic. Based on this cooperation between different stakeholders, we introduce a more advanced paradigm with adaptive peer selection that takes into account traffic dynamics in the operational network. Specifically, peers associated with low path utilization as measured by the ISP are selected in order to reduce the probability of network congestion. This approach not only improves real-time P2P service assurance but also optimizes the overall use of network resources. Our simulations based on the GEANT network topology and real traffic traces show that the proposed adaptive peer selection scheme achieves significant improvement in utilizing bandwidth resources as compared to static locality-based approaches.
