    We study the patterns and predictability of Internet end-to-end service degradations, where a degradation is a significant deviation of the round-trip time (RTT) between a client and a server. We use simultaneous RTT measurements collected from several locations to a large representative set of Web sites and study the duration and extent of degradations. We combine these measurements with border g... View full abstract»

    Recently, there has been an increasing deployment of content distribution networks (CDNs) that offer hosting services to Web content providers. In this paper, we first compare the uncooperative pulling of Web contents used by commercial CDNs with the cooperative pushing. Our results show that the latter can achieve comparable users' perceived performance with only 4%-5% of replication and update t... View full abstract»

  • Measurement and analysis of single-hop delay on an IP backbone network

    We measure and analyze the single-hop packet delay through operational routers in the Sprint Internet protocol (IP) backbone network. After presenting our delay measurements through a single router for OC-3 and OC-12 link speeds, we propose a methodology to identify the factors contributing to single-hop delay. In addition to packet processing, transmission, and queueing delay at the output link, ... View full abstract»

    Peer-to-peer (P2P) computing has emerged as a significant paradigm for providing distributed services, in particular search and data sharing. Current P2P networks (e.g., Gnutella) are constructed by participants following their own uncoordinated (and often whimsical) protocols; they consequently suffer from frequent network overload and partitioning into disconnected pieces separated by choke poin...

    The packet pair mechanism has been shown to be a reliable method to measure the bottleneck link capacity on a network path, but its use for measuring available bandwidth is more challenging. In this paper, we use modeling, measurements, and simulations to better characterize the interaction between probing packets and the competing network traffic. We first construct a simple model to understand h... View full abstract»

    One relatively unexplored question about the Internet's physical structure concerns the geographical location of its components: routers, links, and autonomous systems (ASes). We study this question using two large inventories of Internet routers and links, collected by different methods and about two years apart. We first map each router to its geographical location using two different state-of-t... View full abstract»

  • Measuring the size of the Internet via importance sampling

    Measuring the size of the Internet via Monte Carlo sampling requires probing a large portion of the Internet protocol (IP) address space to obtain an accurate estimate. However, the distribution of information servers on the Internet is highly nonuniform over the IP address space. This allows us to design probing strategies based on importance sampling for measuring the prevalence of an informatio... View full abstract»

  • A nonstationary traffic train model for fine scale inference from coarse scale counts

    The self-similarity of network traffic has been convincingly established based on detailed packet traces. This fundamental result promises the possibility of solving on-line and off-line traffic engineering problems using easily collectible coarse time-scale data, such as simple network management protocol measurements. This paper proposes a statistical model that supports predicting fine time-sca... View full abstract»

    Recent advances in scale-free networks have claimed that their topologies are very weak against attacks. The inhomogeneous connectivity distribution of large-scale current communication networks, such as the Internet, could be exploited by evil hackers in order to damage these systems. However, there have not been many studies on the approaches and consequences of such targeted attacks. In this pa... View full abstract»
