In Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs), the mobile devices communicate through file sharing, where direct communication and sharing takes place without a base station. This type of communication reduces the overloading of the base station. File replication is a technique in which replicas of the frequently accessed files are placed in the communication range of the node to reduce file query delay and overloading. The Random Waypoint Model (RWP) and Community-Based Mobility Model (CBMM) are referred as Normal MANETs and disconnected MANETs respectively. To satisfy Optimal File Replication Rule (OFRR), Priority Competition is implemented in this project. In this competition, every node dynamically updates the list of files based on their priority values (Pi).
The file with the highest priority value is successfully replicated on both the node with the highest meeting ability and on the node with second highest meeting ability, which is near the node with the highest meeting ability.
