The management of subscriptions and events is an important task in the content-based publish/subscribe system. A good management mechanism can not only produce lower matching costs to speed up the delivery of matched events to the interested subscribers but can also induce good load balancing for subscription storage. In this paper, we consider the construction of this kind of system over a peer-to-peer overlay network and propose two message-to-node mapping schemes for system management. We both analyze and simulate the performance of the proposed schemes. The simulation results show the superiority of our schemes over existing ones.
