The RB-Tracker traffic management solution was presented in a poster session during the ManFI Workshop at IM. RB-Tracker is a fully distributed traffic management solution, which aims at reducing Internet traffic peaks by replicating content during low traffic times. The RB-Tracker approach incorporates three distributed mechanisms: Mechanism (1) determines which files to replicate, mechanism (2) determines when to replicate, and mechanism (3) determines where to replicate from. 

RB-Tracker is currently investigated in SmartenIT as a traffic management solution. It is expected that RB-Tracker can greatly benefit from the social awareness component of the SmartenIT architecture.

The poster first shows motivation, goals, and research questions of RB-Tracker. In the middle of the poster, the three mechanisms mentioned above are ilustrated. On the bottom related work is presented.
