At the Tribler P2P team we conduct experiments and measurements like this around the clock. These range from understanding download speed to Peer Exchange efficiency to private Bittorrent community differences. We use these measurements to understand what is going on, what makes systems work and what needs fixing.
[propaganda warning] For the past decade we have been doing these sort of measurements, see tribler.org/PiratesSamaritans, and it's providing us with a lot of essential insight. Over the past years we occasionally make some noise in the press. We intent on showing a bit more what is going on on a regular basis. We have grown to 28 scientists working full-time on P2P file sharing matters, the largest team around. These people are spread out over various topics. We are steadily making progress in areas such as: video-on-demand (by generalising the private Bittorrent community model), sub-second global search, distributed tracking, udp-streaming, spam prevention and content moderation. All our algorithms are being implemented with the academically pure zero-server approach. With full decentralisation we should attain unbounded scalability, provided we have done our job correctly. Every television with just a 400 MHz processors+Internet can then be part of a single global mediacloud. We are delighted to be on track to give you 4G P2P, 4th Generation P2P in 2010. Stay tuned for another Tribler release in 3-4 weeks. So perhaps someday our Tribler client might actually show up in such crawls...
