In this document, we provide a survey of P2P (Peer-to-Peer) systems.
The survey includes a definition and several taxonomies of P2P
systems. This survey also includes a description of which types of
applications can be built with P2P technologies and examples of P2P
applications that are currently in use on the Internet. Finally, we
discuss architectural trade-offs and provide guidelines for deciding
whether or not a P2P architecture would be suitable to meet the
requirements of a given application. This memo provides information
for the Internet community.
