Voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) services using peer-to-peer (P2P) technology have become popular in recent years. In P2P-based VoIP networks such as Skype and P2P session initiation protocol (P2PSIP), super nodes are chosen from among all ordinary end-user nodes and handle particular tasks such as the management of user information, call establishment, and traffic relay. Future communication networks based on P2P technology must support a huge number of user nodes. A fundamental analysis of the load distribution in decentralized user-information management is needed to develop efficient and robust communication networks. In this paper, we analyze the performance of the P2P-based dynamic load distribution. In our analytical model, new nodes join the network according to a nonstationary Poisson process, and the stochastic behavior of the number of online nodes is analyzed approximately with an M($t$)/M/$\infty$ queue. We focus on two performance measures that significantly affect the quality of service (QoS) provided to the users: the churn rate and the load of super nodes. Numerical examples show that the performance of the P2P-based VoIP networks is sensitive to the sojourn time of super nodes and the maximum number of nodes managed by a super node.
