Introduction to Performance Measurements and Monitoring

Presented by: Vinayak Hegde

Day: Sunday, July 19, 2015
Time: 15:00-16:50
Room: Congress Hall I

Description: There are a number of WGs at the IETF that deal with measurements, e.g. IPPM, BMWG, LMAP and PMOL . This tutorials will discuss what these WGs are working on and which parts of the network they focus on. We will talk about underlying statistics and data models and the difference between passive and active measurements. We will also present a number of existing measurement tools such as RIPE Atlas and M-Lab. Parts of the workshop will be hands-on, so we can discuss some real life examples and benefits and implications for network engineers.

Attendees should be familiar with TCP models and cross-layer network issues.
