3.1.1 Abstract Data Model

This section describes a conceptual model of possible data organization that an implementation maintains to participate in this protocol. The described organization is provided to facilitate the explanation of how the protocol behaves. This document does not mandate that implementations adhere to this model as long as their external behavior is consistent with that described in this document.

The following is a list of the abstract data model elements for the protocol state on the client or the requesting peer:

HoHoDk List: A list of the segment IDs/HoHoDks of the segments that the peer is searching for.

Outstanding Probe List: A list of currently outstanding Probes, together with the HoHoDks contained in them.

APP_MAX_DELAY: The maximum time a server peer can wait before sending a ProbeMatch message.
