Abstract : In this paper we show how file sharing peer to peer systems can be modeled by hybrid systems with a continuous part corresponding to a fluid limit of files and a discrete part corresponding to customers. Then we show that this hybrid system is amenable to perfect simulations (i.e. simulations providing samples of the system states which distributions have no bias from the asymptotic distribution of the system). An experimental study is carried to show the respective influence that the different parameters (such as time-to-live, rate of requests, connection time) play on the behavior of large peer to peer systems, and also to show the effectiveness of this approach for numerical solutions of stochastic hybrid systems.
