Dynamic Network Measurement Using Active Networks

Geoffrey H. Kuenning
Harvey Mudd College

About the talk:

Internet measurement has always been a difficult task, due to the necessity for collecting data at multiple locations. Active networks, and the active network backbone (ABONE) in particular, provide new capabilities that can support much more powerful and flexible measurements than have previously been practical. We describe the design of a measurement system that takes advantage of this new infrastructure to collect previously unavailable data, and present the results of preliminary measurements using the system.
