Design and Evaluation of a BitTorrent Proxy for Energy Saving

It is a common experience that many users leave their Personal Computer powered on for very long times to run Peerto-Peer (P2P) me sharing applications. Since a large fraction of nowadays Internet traffic is originated by P2P applications, a significant energy reduction can be achieved increasing the energy efficiency of these applications. In this chapter we focus on BitTorrent - currently the most popular P2P platform - and propose EE-BitTorrent, a proxy-based version of the protocol optimized for energy efficiency. In EE-BitTorrent users delegate the download operations to a proxy, which can serve a large number of users, and switch off their PC during the download. We implemented and evaluated our solution in a real testbed. Our results show that, with respect to the legacy approach, EEBitTorrent can provide up to 95% energy savings while reducing, at the same time, the average download time.
