Learning an Internet Coordinate System: PCA versus Factor Analysis


A large number of networking applications require knowledge of packet round trip times to different machines on the Internet. We use a set of N beacons to construct an N -dimensional coordinate system, where N is in the range 20 to 30. The delay between two machines is the Euclidean Distance between their coordinates. Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and… (More)
