This is my PhD thesis, and is the ultimate reference for real-time P2P update dissemination. It contains surveys and taxonomies of past solutions and evaluation methodologies, a detailed mapping of the problem space, in-depth measurement studies of rich NVE network traces, as well as the complete design, implementation, and evaluation of the state-of-the-art in UD systems. Among other contributions, the evaluation framework and workloads have been made available under open-source licences. Libraries derived from this work are available at libfabric.com.
