BitTorrent İletim Protokollerinin Veri Aktarım Başarımlarının Karşılaştırılması
Comparison of Data Transfer Performance of BitTorrent Transmission Protocols

Halil ARSLAN [1] , Özkan CANAY [2]


Dağıtık dosya paylaşım protokollerinden BitTorrent, merkezi olmayan internet felsefesinin ilk örneklerinden olarak kabul edilmekte ve bu bağlamda önemli araştırma alanları arasında yer almaktadır. BitTorrent’te iletim katmanı protokolü olarak başlangıçta TCP kullanılmış, gecikme ve bant genişliğinin aşırı tüketilmesi problemlerinden dolayı uTP protokolüne geçiş yapılmıştır. Daha sonra BitTorrent protokolünün Web’e uyarlanmış hali olan WebTorrent ile iletim katmanı protokolü olarak WebRTC önerilmiştir. Bu sayede herhangi bir eklenti kullanmadan doğrudan internet tarayıcıları üzerinden BitTorrent protokolünün çalışması sağlanmıştır. Yapılan çalışmada, bu üç iletim protokolünün torrent paylaşımlarındaki veri alışveriş boyutları karşılaştırılmış ve bu bağlamda avantaj ve dezavantajları ortaya konulmuştur.

BitTorrent, one of the distributed file sharing protocols, is regarded as one of the first examples of decentralized Internet philosophy and is among the important research areas in this context. TCP was initially used as the transport layer protocol in BitTorrent, and the transition to the uTP protocol was made because of the problems of latency and excessive bandwidth consumption. Later, with WebTorrent, which is a BitTorrent protocol adapted to the web, WebRTC was proposed as a transport layer protocol. Thus, BitTorrent protocol is enabled to work directly through Internet browsers without using any plugin. In this study, the data exchange sizes in the torrent shares of these three transmission protocols have been compared and the advantages and disadvantages of these protocols were demonstrated in this context.
