Contact It would seem useful to add to the Contact data structure at least: The node under consideration is node six binary in black. Second, new nodes may join the network with IDs closer to some published key than the nodes on which the key-value pair was originally published. Gummadi, and Steven D. Finally, a node-ID-based routing algorithm lets anyone efficiently locate servers near any given target key. The values are stored at several nodes k of them to allow for nodes to come and go and still have the value available in some node.

Second generation peer-to-peer networks, such as Gnutellaused flooding to locate files, searching every node on the network. So the Distance is only a value to use the quick search algorithm. Recently I’ve read a document of the Kademlia Protocol, I tried to understand the protocol, but I still have some question: It would be sensible to make the expiration interval tExpire somewhat greater than the republication interval tRepublish.

Initially, nodes have one k-bucket.

It can be modeled as a triein which each leaf represents a node, and the labeled path from the root to a leaf represents its ID. The requester will update a results list with the results node ID’s he receives, keeping the k best ones the k nodes that are closer to the searched key that respond to queries.


There are several ways to guarantee this; the most common is to take a hash, such as the bit SHA1 digest, of the value. For the best experience, upgrade to the latest version of IE, or view this page in another browser.

Firstly, k-buckets implement a least-recently seen eviction policy, except that live nodes are never removed from the list. Periodically, a node that stores a value will explore kadempia network to find the k nodes that are close to the key value and replicate the value onto them.

However, it appears that the initiating node maintains a shortlist of k closest nodes.

The list is returned to the caller. Otherwise, two scenarios may cause lookups for valid keys to fail: An m-bit prefix reduces the maximum number of lookups from log 2 n to log 2 m n. If the identifiers are initialized to zero or are generated by the same random number generator with the same seed, the probability will be very high indeed.

To avoid redundant store RPCs for the same content from different nodes, a node only transfers a KV pair if its own ID is closer to the key than are the IDs of other nodes. If the joining node has not yet participated in the network, it computes a random ID number that is supposed not to be already assigned to any other node.

Kademlia: A Design Specification

The requirement that data expires tExpire one day after the original publication date is more than ambiguous and would seem to mean that no data can ever be republished. When a new node joins the system, it must store any KV pair to which it is one of the k-closest. The node then fills the shortlist with contacts from the replies received. If the node is found to be still alive, the new node is placed in a secondary list, a replacement cache.


The hashes and the node IDs must be of the protcool length.

This has a kadejlia effect: View the discussion thread. As nodes are encountered on the network, they are added to the lists. The kademliq of that query gives you the next group of nodes to query, and the process repeats — and because a node would return results that are closer than it is, each iteration tends to find nodes closer and closer to the target til you finally reach a node that can say “Oh, node X?

Since a key can correspond to many values, e. These are maximum values and the average value will be far less, increasing the chance of finding a node in a k-bucket that shares more bits than just the prefix with the target key.

Every node encountered will be considered for inclusion in the lists. Consider the simple network to the right. Because the value is returned from nodes farther away from the key, this alleviates possible “hot spots”. If the reply was OK, then the initiator may send the value. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

While this is not formally protocil, it is clear that the initial STORE message must contain in addition to the message ID at least the data to be stored including its length and the associated key. This is the Kademlia search operation. As each set of replies comes back, it is used to improve the shortlist:
