We report on a new tool developed for monitoring available bandwidth in the range from several Mbps to 1000 Mbps. The tool is based on the packet pair dispersion technique . It has been in experimental use at SLAC for several months and it has been demonstrated at iGrid2002 and SC2002. It can b e used for detecting bandwidth changes caused by routing or congestions. We have studied the influence of cross traffic and the behavior of routers on the delay of the probing packets . The paper… Expand

Active Techniques for Available Bandwidth Estimation: Comparison and Application
TLDR
This chapter describes a novel platform called UANM, capable of properly choosing, configuring, and using different available bandwidth tools and techniques in an autonomic fashion, and shows the results of a comparison of the performance of several tools in terms of accuracy, probing time and intrusiveness.

Available Bandwidth Estimation Tools Metrics, Approaches and Performance
TLDR
This work expands the information regarding the evaluation literature of the current Available Bandwidth Estimation Tools (ABET’s), where they analyze the estimation techniques, metrics, different generation tools of cross-traffic and evaluation testbed, as well as the challenges faced by open-source tools in high-performance networks of 10Gbps or higher.

Packet Analyzer and Measurement Too l
TLDR
A simple tool for actively measuring available bandwidth along a network path that exploits data packets transmitted in a TCP connection and estimates available bandwidth of the network path between sender and receiver utilizing the arrival ACK from the receiver is proposed. Expand
ASSOLO: an Efficient Tool for Active End-to-end Available Bandwidth Estimation
TLDR
Experimental results show that ASSOLO outperforms pathChirp, a state-of-the-art measurement tool, estimating the available bandwidth with greater accuracy and stability in presence of different cross-traffic sources, and the use of a real-time operating system can increase the stability of the estimations lowering the impact of software context switches.

On the applicability of available bandwidth estimation techniques and tools
TLDR
A performance evaluation of Pathload, Pathchirp, Spruce, IGI, and Abing in a low cost and flexible test bed demonstrates that ABETTs are far from being ready to be applied in all these applications and scenarios. Expand

Estimating Available Bandwidth Using Overloading Stream with Variable Packet Size
TLDR
A new method based on a statistical model for network path to estimate available bandwidth using an overload stream with variable packet size(linear increased packet size), requiring no prior knowledge of network path is proposed. Expand
Experiences in traceroute and available bandwidth change analysis
TLDR
The experiences, techniques and algorithms used to detect and report on significant traceroute and bandwidth changes are discussed, to develop a lightweight WAN network performance monitoring system that can detect, in near real time, significant changes and generate alerts. Expand
Bandwidth Estimation for Network Quality of Service Management
TLDR
Two bandwidth efficient AB estimation mechanisms - ProbeGap and Resource Friendly Bandwidth Estimation (RFBE) are modified and evaluated their performance over a crypto-partitioned red-black network. Expand

End-to-End Packet Delay and Loss Behavior in the Internet
TLDR
The measured round trip delays of small UDP probe packets sent at regular time intervals are used to analyze the end-to-end packet delay and loss behavior in the Internet and find that the losses of probe packets are essentially random unless the probe traffic uses a large fraction of the available bandwidth.

End-to-end Internet packet dynamics
TLDR
The prevalence of unusual network events such as out-of-order delivery and packet corruption are characterized and a robust receiver-based algorithm for estimating "bottleneck bandwidth" is discussed that addresses deficiencies discovered in techniques based on "packet pair". Expand
Traffic modeling and characterization for UMTS networks
TLDR
The key idea of this aggregated traffic model lies in customizing the batch Markovian arrival process (BMAP) such that different packet sizes of IP packets are represented by rewards (ie, batch sizes of arrivals) of the BMAP. Expand
