Resource Reclamation in Distributed Hash Tables
In this paper, we discuss the problem of storage reclamation in DHTs that use redundancy to provide high data availability. Two approaches for performing storage reclamation for lazy repair are active polling and implicit garbage collection. We evaluated the overhead of these two approaches under low churn situation to high. The garbage collection is most effective for high churn peer to peer environments and the active approach is more suitable for low churn systems like educational/corporate environments.
