This document reports the outcome of a workshop organized by the
Real-time Applications and Infrastructure Area Directors of the IETF
to discuss network delay and congestion issues resulting from
increased Peer-to-Peer (P2P) traffic volumes.  The workshop was held
on May 28, 2008 at MIT in Cambridge, MA, USA.  The goals of the
workshop were twofold: to understand the technical problems that ISPs
and end users are experiencing as a result of high volumes of P2P
traffic, and to begin to understand how the IETF may be helpful in
addressing these problems.  Gaining an understanding of where in the
IETF this work might be pursued and how to extract feasible work
items were highlighted as important tasks in pursuit of the latter
goal.  The workshop was very well attended and produced several work
items that have since been taken up by members of the IETF community.
