Abstract : In a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) network there is a lack of clear distinction among client and server nodes. Each and every network node (or peer) requires network resources and contributes resources to the network. This arrangement gives a clear representation that when more number of peers enter in to the network, additional resources such as CPU, storage, and bandwidth will be available for all the peers in the network. BitTorrent is a most popular and predominant peer to peer file distribution mechanism due to its scalability and ability to distribute large files quickly and expeditiously without devastating the server capacity. The Study of bittorrrent performance helps in understanding the characteristics and improvements in certain areas of the BitTorrent. This paper proposes new strategy to study and evaluate BitTorrent and its core mechanisms, the performance factor including uplink/ downlink utilization and fairness.
