  author={Ram{\'o}n C{\'a}ceres and Nick G. Duffield and Joseph Horowitz and Donald F. Towsley and Tian Bu},
Weexplorethe useof end-to-endmulticast traffic asmeasurement probesto infer network-internal characteristics. We have developed in an earlier paper [2] a Maximum Likelihood Estimator for packet loss rates on individual links basedon lossesobservedby multicast receivers. This techniqueexploits the inherent correlation betweensuchobservations to infer the performanceof paths betweenbranch points in the multicast tr eespanningthe probesourceand its receivers.Weevaluatethrough analysis and… CONTINUE READING
