These NMIs support network-wide "active" and "passive" measurement data collection and analysis to: 1) identify end-to-end performance bottlenecks in network paths and 2) broadly understand Internet traffic characteristics, on an ongoing basis. In this paper, we present our analysis of the active and passive measurement data collected along network… CONTINUE READING
