We present the architecture for data collection for the NSFNET backbone and diiculties with using the collected statistics for long-term network forecasting of certain traac aspects. We describe relevant aspects of the NSFNET backbone architecture and the instrumentation for statistics collection. We then present long-term NSFNET data to elucidate long-term trends in both the reachability of Internet components via the NSFNET as well as the growing cross-section of traac. We focus on the…

Post-NSFNET statistics collection
TLDR
Issues and complexities of statistics collection at recently deployed global network access points such as the U.S. federal NAPs are discussed.
Seven Years and One Day: Sketching the Evolution of Internet Traffic
TLDR
This contribution shows and explains how and why random projection (sketch) based analysis procedures provide practitioners with an efficient and robust tool to disentangle actual long term evolutions from time localized events such as anomalies and link congestions.
On Long-Range Dependence in NSFNET Traffic
TLDR
Investigation of the underlying processes for a subset of tra c created by TCP indicates that the (heavy-tailed) joint distribution of TCP conversation sizes and conversation transmission rates are the key factors contributing to long-range dependence.
Characterizing End-to-end Internet Performance
TLDR
The first large-scale measurement based study on CDNs is conducted, focusing on how they are used on the Web and how well they perform in terms of client download time, providing a baseline on an effective way to evaluate large- scale Internet systems and applications.
Efficient algorithms for passive network measurement
TLDR
This work proposes an algorithm called Cuckoo Sampling that can operate with a fixed memory budget and perform adaptive flow-wise packet sampling and is based on a very simple data structure and is computationally extremely lightweight.

New Phenomena in Large-Scale Internet Traffic
TLDR
Analysis of the largest publicly available Internet traffic data using 10,000 processors in the MIT SuperCloud reveals a new phenomena: the importance of otherwise unseen leaf nodes and isolated links in Internet traffic.
A Parameterizable Methodology for Internet Traac Ow Prooling
TLDR
This approach to ow characterization helps address some central problems in networking based on the Internet model, including route caching, resource reservation at multiple service levels, usage based accounting, and the integration of IP traac over an ATM fabric.
Characterizing End-to-end Internet Performance Biographical Sketch I Spent One and a Half Years Visiting the At&t Center for Internet Research at Icsi (aciri). I Had a Wonderful Time with the Stellar Team of Networking Re- Searchers at Aciri, Including
TLDR
This thesis has attempted to characterize end-to-end Internet performance at both the network layer and the application layer, and provides a baseline on an effective way to evaluate large-scale Internet systems and applications.
Measurements and analysis of end-to-end Internet dynamics
TLDR
This work describes the resulting characterizations of Internet packet loss and delay, including general assessments of queueing time scales and available bandwidth, using a distributed framework developed for conducting end-to-end measurements.

Traffic characteristics of the T1 NSFNET backbone
The results of a measurement study of the T1 NSFNET backbone are presented. The measurement environment and the approach to data collection are discussed. Measurements results are then presented for:
Mitigating the Coming Internet Crunch: Multiple Service Levels via Precedence
TLDR
A scheme for voluntarily setting Internet traffic priorities by end-users and applications is proposed, using the existing 3-bit Precedence field in the Internet Protocol header, providing a smooth transition path from the present system.
Application of sampling methodologies to network traffic characterization
TLDR
A study of the performance of various methods of sampling in answering questions related to wide area network traffic characterization, using a packet trace from a network environment that aggregates traffic from a large number of sources to reveal that the time-triggered techniques did not perform as well as the packet-trIGgered ones.

Management Information Base for network management of TCP/IP-based internets
TLDR
This memo provides the initial version of the Management Information Base for use with network management protocols in TCP/IP-based internets in the short-term.
Improving the routing and addressing of IP
TLDR
These proposals make it possible to significantly increase the utilization of addresses and extend the time the Internet can use the Internet Protocol (IP) Version 4.0.
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
This RFC is a re-release of RFC 1098, with a changed "Status of this Memo" section plus a few minor typographical corrections. This memo defines a simple protocol by which management information for
Assigned numbers
TLDR
This Network Working Group Request for Comments documents the currently assigned values from several series of numbers used in network protocol implementations, as well as handles the assignment of numbers.

TLDR
This memo defines the second version of the Management Information Base (MIB-II) for use with network management protocols in TCP/IP- based internets and describes the structure of management information along with the network management protocol.
Guidelines for Management of IP Address Space
TLDR
This document has been reviewed by the Federal Engineering Planning Group (FEPG), the co-chairs of the Intercontinental Engineering planning Group (IEPG), and the Reseaux IP Europeens to support the recommendations proposed in this document for management of the IP address space.
