How are P2P file searches different from Web searches?

Web servers are business class servers for high performance and availability. The P2P network is composed of home users that are transient. A file that you can't find in a current search may be available a few minutes or a few hours later.

Network Differences Web P2P
Host computer user Business servers Mostly home users
Host availabilty Always On Variable. Most users use P2P software for a limited time each session.
Internet connection speed High speed connections Mostly dial-up
Search Process Central database, static listings Searches propagated among users, current listings
