Internet2 End-to-End Performance Initiative, or Fat Pipes are Not Enough


This presentation will describe the overall vision and various activities of the Internet2 End-to-End Performance Initiative. Activities within the initiative are to establish a performance measurement infrastructure across Internet2 campuses and labs, perform analysis of the end-to-end path, and eventually lead to a normal operational mode where network operations, applications, and the end user can easily determine network capabilities and restrictions. Of particular importance is the role of the campus, which provides one "end" of the network, the computing resources, the applications, and the user at the other "end" of the end-to-end path.
