Paper Abstract

We have started a long-term experiment of end-to-end active measurements along a number of Internet paths, while such kinds of distributed measurement infrastructures have been developed on the Internet and a number of experiments on them have already been reported. Our objective is to explore correlations among various properties of an individual path measured within a period in which the path state does not change, which have not yet been clearly covered. A PC-based measurement system has been developed to measure a set of path properties in sequence or in parallel for this purpose. In our preliminary experiment over several Internet paths in Japan, loss (rate and pattern) and delay (RTT and queuing delay) statistics; bottleneck bandwidths (the capacity and available bandwidth); and TCP throughput as well as the end-to-end route (to validate no changes of itself) are measured. Some interesting correlations (and no-correlation) among those properties are shown, which indicate the potential of efficient and/or reliable measurement of some path property utilizing the multiple properties measured on the path.
