We develop an analytical model of information dissemination for a gossiping protocol that combines both pull and push approaches. With this model we analyse how fast an item is replicated through a network, and how fast the item covers the network. We also determine the optimal size of the exchange buffer, to obtain fast replication. Our results are confirmed by large-scale simulation experiments. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
