Cloud Class

Definition

Specifies the values that define a Peer Cloud object.

Remarks

A Cloud is a set of nodes that can communicate with each other through the network. Cloud, peer mesh, and peer-to-peer graph are synonymous. A single peer or node may be connected to more than one cloud.

Communication between nodes should never cross from one cloud to another. A Cloud instance is uniquely identified by its name, which is case-sensitive.

Clouds are tied very closely to network interfaces. On a multi-homed machine with two network cards attached to different subnets, three clouds will be returned: one for each of the link local addresses per interface, and a single global scope cloud.

Constructors

Cloud(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)

Initializes a new instance of the PNRP Cloud type. This populates a serialization information object with the data needed to serialize the Cloud object.

Fields

AllLinkLocal

Returns a reference to a Cloud which represents all the link-local clouds in which the client or peer is currently participating.

Available

Returns a static reference to a Cloud which represents all the available clouds in which the client is currently participating.

Properties

Global

Gets a Cloud instance that contains globally (internet) scoped peers.

Name

Gets the name of the peer Cloud.

Scope

Gets the network scope of the peer Cloud.

ScopeId

Gets the identifier of a specific IP address for this peer Cloud.

Methods

Equals(Cloud)

Performs a case-sensitive comparison between two cloud objects.

Equals(Object)

Determines whether the content of this peer Cloud is equivalent to the content of a System object.

GetAvailableClouds()

Obtains a collection of peer clouds known to the calling peer.

GetCloudByName(String)

Returns the Cloud object with the specified cloud name.

GetHashCode()

Overrides GetHashCode().

GetObjectData(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)

Populates a System.Runtime.Serialization information object with the data needed to serialize the Cloud.

GetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.

(Inherited from Object)
MemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.

(Inherited from Object)
ToString()

Returns a string representation of the current Cloud.

Explicit Interface Implementations

ISerializable.GetObjectData(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)

Implements the ISerializable interface and returns the data needed to serialize the Cloud instance.
