Abstract: There is no clear distinction between client and server nodes in a peer-to-peer (P2P) network. Network nodes (or peers) requiring resources also contribute resources to the network. Such an arrangement ensures that more resources like CPU, storage, and bandwidth are available for other peers when more nodes enter the network. BitTorrent is a popular and scalable peer-to-peer file distribution mechanism successful in distributing large files expeditiously and efficiently without creating problems for the origin server. Measurement studies revealed that BitTorrent achieved excellent upload utilization, but also led several questions regarding utilization in settings other than those measured, fairness, and choice of BitTorrent’s mechanisms. This paper proposes a novel technique for block selection based on fuzzy logic. The proposed technique uses the best features of Random piece selection and Bandwidth based piece selection ensure fairness. The proposed technique is evaluated based on the link utilization through various scenarios.
