Delay estimation schemes have been proposed to estimate the n2 delays between n hosts using only O(n) measurements. Each scheme has been shown accurate when evaluated using an aggregated metric. However, their accuracy is low using metrics that evaluate their quality of estimations as experienced by the application users. Further, their use in several applications produces delay several times higher than optimal. This paper considers five classes of network applications and proposes three delay… CONTINUE READING
