The Gnutella2 object search mechanism defines a powerful query descriptor capable of specifying a number of different extensible search criteria, and requesting a subset of information about matching objects.

Query Throttle

Querying the Gnutella2 network can lead to a lot of results, putting a resource strain on both the network as a whole nad the querying party itself.
