Distributed applications can often benefit from knowledge of the bandwidth between hosts, without performing measurements between all host pairs. For example, if a peer-to-peer (P2P) computational grid system predicts pairwise bandwidth between all nodes in the system, that information could increase overall system performance by finding high-bandwidth nodes to store large scientific input or output datasets. Another possible beneficiary is a P2P online game, which can provide users a seamless gaming experience by selecting a coordinator node that has high-bandwidth connections to the players in a game region.
