Peer-to-Peer (P2P) systems have been attractive solutions for resource distribution and sharing because of their self-organizing and fault-tolerant features. However, due to the decentralized nature, search efficiency is a challenging problem for large scale knowledge resource distribution P2P systems. In this paper, peer-similarity based P2P overlay clustering algorithm is proposed. Simulation results show that search efficiency using overlay clustering of similar peers is substantially improved.
