The demand for streaming multimedia applications is growing at an
incredible rate. In this paper, we propose Bayeux, an efficient application-level
multicast system that scales to arbitrarily large receiver groups while
tolerating failures in routers and network links. Bayeux also includes
specific mechanisms for load-balancing across replicate root nodes and
more efficient bandwidth consumption. Our simulation results indicate that
Bayeux maintains these properties while keeping transmission overhead low.
To achieve these properties, Bayeux leverages the architecture of Tapestry,
a fault-tolerant, wide-area overlay routing and location network.
