The Network Weather Service is a generalizable and extensible facility designed to provide dynamic resource performance forecasts in metacomputing environments. In this paper, we outline its design and detail the predictive performance of the forecasts it generates. While the forecasting methods are general, we focus on their ability to predict the TCP/IP end-to-end throughput and latency that is attainable by an application using systems located at different sites. Such network forecasts are needed both to support scheduling, and by the metacomputing software infrastructure to develop quality-of-service guarantees
