Network virtualization has long been a goal of of the network research community. With it, multiple isolated logical networks each with potentially different addressing and forwarding mechanisms can share the same physical infrastructure. Typically this is achieved by taking advantage of the flexibility of software (e.g. [20, 23]) or by duplicating(More)
A persistent problem in computer network research is validation. When deciding how to evaluate a new feature or bug fix, a researcher or operator must trade-off realism (in terms of scale, actual user traffic, real equipment) and cost (larger scale costs more money, real user traffic likely requires downtime, and real equipment requires vendor adoption(More)
1. SLICED PROGRAMMABLE NETWORKS OpenFlow [4] has been demonstrated as a way for researchers to run networking experiments in their production network. Last year, we demonstrated how an OpenFlow controller running on NOX [3] could move VMs seamlessly around an OpenFlow network [1]. While OpenFlow has potential [2] to open control of the network, only one(More)
The majority of planning and scheduling research has focused on batch-oriented models of planning. This paper discusses the use of iterative repair techniques to support a continuous planning process as is appropriate for autonomous spacecraft control. This allows the plan to incorporate execution feedback-such as early or late completion of activities, and(More)
Mapping the router topology is an important component of Internet measurement. Alias resolution, the process of mapping IP addresses to routers, is critical to accurate Internet mapping. Ally, a popular alias resolution tool, was developed to resolve aliases in individual ISPs, but its probabilistic accuracy and need to send O(n<sup>2</sup>) probes to infer(More)
Network architectures such as Software-Defined Networks (SDNs) move the control logic off packet processing devices and onto external controllers. These network architectures with decoupled control planes open many unanswered questions regarding reliability, scalability, and performance when compared to more traditional purely distributed systems.
