Measurement and analysis of IP network usage and behavior
Additional Document Info
Traffic, usage, and performance measurements are crucial to the design, operation and control of Internet Protocol networks. This article describes a prototype infrastructure for the measurement, storage, and correlation of network data of different types and origins from AT&T's commercial IP network. We focus first on some novel aspects of the measurement infrastructure, then describe analyses that illustrate the power of joining different measured data sets for network planning and design.
