Mathematical Analysis of Gnutella

Alfred Re:Even worse! Incosistent math! (332 comments)

You have missed the point of the paper. The N=4 and T=5 values equate to a maximum reach of 484 clients for a query. To reach "napster" sizes of 1million you need T=7 and N=8.
That explains the different numbers.

However, I do agree that a couple numbers seem to be plucked from mid-air, but the argument and maths seems fine :)
