The following paper conducts an extended analysis on different measurement studies performed on popular P2P Chinese application called Xunlei. In this particular research paper, several previous researches have been studied and their arguments were compared, in order to find out finalized reason behind this enormous companies’ success. Its packet-level data was evaluated in order to understand applications network architecture and download behavior. Xunlei’s core-server layer was analyzed by division of tasks. It was discovered that application uses direct linking and applies multi-source technology in an effective way in order to increase the download speed. Also, it was found that Xunlei uses UDP as the main transport protocol for both IPTV streaming and bulk file transfer.
