The end-to-end (e2e) stability of Internet routing has been studied for over a decade, focusing on routes and delays. This paper presents a novel technique for uncovering the origins of delay variations by measuring the overlap between delay distribution of probed routes, and how these are affected by route stability.  

         Evaluation is performed using two large scale experiment...

The paper introduces a novel structural approach to automatically generate large scale PoP-level maps of the Internet using a large scale distributed traceroute measurement campaign.

The PoPs are first identified based on their structure, and then are assigned a location using information from multiple sources. Using this approach, we could evaluate the accuracy of these databases and...

The diversity of end-to-end (e2e) Internet routes has been studied for over a decade, dating back to Paxson’s seminal work from 1995. This paper presents a measurement study of this issue and systematically evaluate the diversity of the Internet routes, while revisiting some of the conclusions previously made. Two large scale experiments are used for evaluation, one executed in late...

The discovery of Autonomous Systems (ASes) interconnections and the inference of their commercial Type of Relationships (ToR) has been motivated by the need to accurately calculate AS-level paths. An inherent problem in current algorithms is their extensive use of heuristics, causing unbounded errors that are spread over all inferred relationships. We propose a near-deterministic alg...

There is a long line of research on measuring the Quality of Service (QoS) path characteristics of the Internet, such as available bandwidth, path capacity, packets reordering, delay and jitter. Most of the measurement techniques are based on active probing using pairs or trains of packets. The packets are either transmitted back-to-back or at a desired spacing (e.g., to achieve a ce...

Traceroute is widely used, from the diagnosis of network problems to the assemblage of internet maps. However, there are a few serious problems with this tool, in particular due to the presence of load balancing routers in the network. This paper describes a number of anomalies that arise in nearly all traceroute-based measurements. We categorize them as "loops", "cycles", and "diamo...

Today’s Internet maps, which are all collected from a small number of vantage points, are falling short of being accurate. We suggest here a paradigm shift for this task. DIMES is a distributed measurement infrastructure for the Internet that is based on the deployment of thousands of light weight measurement agents around the globe. We describe the rationale behind DIMES deployment,...

Distance estimation is important to many Internet applications. It can aid a World Wide Web client when selecting among several potential candidate servers, or among candidate peer-to-peer servers. It can also aid in building efficient overlay or peer-to-peer networks that dynamically react to change in the underlying Internet. One of the approaches to distance (i.e., time delay) est...

There is an increasing need to quickly and efficiently learn network distances, in terms of metrics such as latency or bandwidth, between Internet hosts. For example, Internet content providers often place data and server mirrors throughout the Internet to improve access latency for clients, and it is necessary to direct clients to the nearest mirrors based on some distance metric in...
