DHT (Distributed Hash Table) algorithms are very efficient for distributed data storage and retrieval. As one kind of P2P overlay, DHT overlay also has the advantages of high reliability, high scalability and low cost. DHT has not only been applied to form user nodes' overlays, but also been proposed to form DHT-based server farms, such as DHT-based SIP server farm, HSS server farm, DNS server farm, CDN server farm, etc. However, seldom DHT algorithms consider server farm's stringent requirement on system capacity, and only a handful of DHT algorithms take server into consideration. This paper presents our DHT algorithm called SFDHT for high throughput DHT server farm. Compared with existing DHTs, SFDHT considers the characters and requirements of DHT server farm and maximizes system capacity. SFDHT is a one-hop DHT with novel built-in load balancing solution. The proposed load balancing solution produces much less overhead that existing solutions do. Both theoretical analysis and simulation results show that SFDHT can reduce overhead, balance load and improve system capacity.
