Available bandwidth, along with latency and packet loss ratio, is an essential metric for efficient operation of overlay network applications. However, the measurement of available bandwidth requires a larger amount of probe traffic than other metrics. Furthermore, measurement conflict between paths with overlapping routes can seriously degrade measurement accuracy and cause a non-negligible increase in the network load. In this paper, we propose a distributed method for measuring available… CONTINUE READING
