Abstract
Performance, Reliability, Free Riders, Peer to Peer System

Keywords
Peer-to-peer systems are alternative systems to traditional client-server systems, which is becoming popular nowadays. However, as the system is dependent on each individual user contribution, the P2P system is facing problems due to users that consume more than they contribute to the system; so called free- riders. This paper offers solutions with the free-riding behavior of users introducing various mechanisms which would force users to actively participate in contribution to the system.
