Internet maps are generally constructed using the traceroute tool from a few sources to many destinations. It appeared recently that this exploration process gives a partial and biased view of the real topology, which leads to the idea of increasing the number of sources to improve the quality of the maps. In this paper, we present a set of experiments we have conduced to evaluate the relevance of this approach. It appears that the statistical properties of the underlying network have a strong… CONTINUE READING
