Measurements on Delay and Hop-count of the Internet

  title={Measurements on Delay and Hop-count of the Internet},
  author={Aiguo Fei and Guangyu Pei and Roy Liu and Lixia Zhang},
To nd out how big the Internet is, we measured the round-trip delays and hop-counts from a UCLA host computer to a randomly selected set of three thousand Internet hosts around the world. Our results show that over 90% of these hosts in continental US are within 18 hops from UCLA, and the round-trip delays to 90% of these hosts are less than 153ms. There seems no strong correlation between the delay and hop-count, although the average delay increases with hop-count. Measurements to… CONTINUE READING
