As IPv4 address space approaches exhaustion, large networks are deploying IPv6 or preparing for deployment. However, there is little data available about the quantity and quality of IPv6 connectivity. We describe a methodology to measure IPv6 adoption from the perspective of a Web site operator and to evaluate the impact that adding IPv6 to a Web site will(More)
TCP flows start with an initial congestion window of at most four segments or approximately 4KB of data. Because most Web transactions are short-lived, the initial congestion window is a critical TCP parameter in determining how quickly flows can finish. While the global network access speeds increased dramatically on average in the past decade, the(More)
We describe an on-line service, and its underlying methodology, designed to extract BGP peerings from the Internet Routing Registry. Both the method and the service are based on: a consistency manager for integrating information across different registries, an RPSL analyzer that extracts peering specifications from RPSL objects, and a peering classifier(More)
—Interdomain routes change over time, and it is impressive to observe up to which extent. Routes may change many times in the same day and sometimes in the same hour or minute. Such changes are caused by several types of events, e.g., a routing policy variation in an ISP, a router reboot, or a link fault. In this paper we do a step towards the(More)
Recent works on modeling the Internet topology [8, 9] have highlighted how the complexity of relationships between Autonomous Systems (ASes) can not be oversimplified without sacrificing accuracy in capturing route selection. Such a shortcoming can mislead the understanding, hence the prediction, of the BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) behavior. In particular,(More)
