Wireless mesh networks that include large numbers of peer nodes pose problems for routing frameworks. Multicast messages used for peer discovery can get dropped and synchronization of data between peer nodes does not scale to large numbers of peer nodes. A peer eviction technique for selective eviction of peer nodes is described. The technique can be used to limit the number of nodes for a wireless mesh network. Peer nodes are selected for eviction based on node-specific metrics. The technique ensures stability of the network by restricting the eviction rate and by adjustments to signal thresholds used to evaluate nodes for eviction.
