Application-Layer Multicast Extensions to REsource LOcation And Discovery (RELOAD)
We define a REsource LOcation And Discovery (RELOAD) Usage for Application-Layer Multicast (ALM) as well as a mapping to the RELOAD experimental message type to support ALM. The ALM Usage is intended to support a variety of ALM control algorithms in an overlay- independent way. Two example algorithms are defined, based on Scribe and P2PCast.
