    Local Area Networks (LANs) are a recent technology and are used for the high speed interconnection and networking of computers and terminals in a local environment. As LANs evolved, the need to maintain, troubleshoot, and characterize their performance also evolved. Test tools, measurement techniques, and simulators became necessary entities to achieve this objective. Focusing on this new technolo... View full abstract»

    Performance measurement and monitoring in a networked computing system is a multi-level activity. At the lowest levels, performance monitoring provides a measure of “point-to-point” efficiency: one hopes to determine how well a network can move information between two arbitrary network stations under a variety of load and error configurations, usually without regard for the contents ...

    As Local Area Networks (LAN's) continue to grow in acceptance, they are quickly becoming the local data communication backbone of corporations. Their popularity is a result of the high bandwidth offered (>1 Mbps) and the multiaccess nature of the medium. At the lowest level, LAN's are used to interconnect computers, terminals and peripherals, allowing these devices to easily intercommunicat... View full abstract»

    For the past three years the National Bureau of Standards (NBS) has investigated Open System Interconnection (OSI) protocol performance issues. To support this investigation the NBS has developed several transport layer performance tools and has made many performance measurements. This article describes the function and design of a software system and the implementation of a testbed comprising the... View full abstract»

    As the use of Local Area Networks (LANs) increases, and users become more sensitive to network downtime, it is important to be able to provide the network manager with mechanisms to monitor network performance. Monitoring tools should provide reduction and statistical analysis of traffic data, as well as displays that format the collected information in a meaningful and understandable output. Many...

    Measuring performance is a critical area in the study of computer systems. As systems have evolved over the years, various techniques to characterize their behavior have been developed. Meaningful performance parameters and appropriate techniques to derive them depend on the particular computer system under investigation. This article describes a performance measurement technique that is applicabl... View full abstract»

    Sometimes, I sit back and wonder where we are going. Especially in data networking. Why do we need it? There are, of course, simple applications like electronic mail and file transfer, or more complex special applications like Common Channel Interoffice Signalling and 800 service. But what will make data networking ubiquitous? Operations Systems, of course! I expect tremendous growth in Operations... View full abstract»

    The delivery of information where it is needed, when it is needed and in the form it is needed is among the most valuable functions that can be provided by an information infrastructure. Indeed, once the economy has become dependent on such functions, it is also strongly affected by the strengths and weaknesses of the technology underlying the infrastructure. Loss of power service, telephone servi... View full abstract»

    The muddle of alphabet soup of standards organizations generally leaves people quite bewildered. There are many activities involved in the standards development process both internationally and nationally. I will try to put the international scene into perspective in this issue.
