bayPIGgies meeting Thursday 7/10: 
P2P/BitTorrent data mining with Python and C
by Niall O'Higgins 

The BitTorrent protocol is estimated to account for 18-35% of traffic 
on the Internet. This talk will give an introduction to the protocol, 
why it has been so effective compared to other P2P systems, and what 
its limitations are. We will then cover what features make Python an 
excellent tool to power large scale data mining and analysis of P2P 
networks. Finally, we will present some results of the quantitive 
analysis of BitTorrent conducted by the Peer-to-Peer Research 
Institute.
