During the last years, overlay networks have become one of the most prominent tools for Internet research and development. With overlay networks networking users, developers and application users can easily design and implement their own communication environment and protocols on top of the Internet. It is network on the top of existing network provide additional services. It is a virtual network of nodes and logical links on the top of existing network but the network defines addressing, routing and service model for communication b/w hosts. Some applications in which overlay networks are distributed systems such as cloud computing, peer-to-peer networks, and client-server applications. It is used in designing own environment like data routing and file sharing management. In this paper we will discuss various parameters which effect the performance of managed overlays.
