MembersM, Hans Addleman, Scott Chevalier, Andrew Lee,

perfSONAR is an open source software suite that provides a robust set of network performance monitoring tools. ... These tools make it easier to solve end-to-end network performance problems on paths crossing different network domains, as well as local monitoring.  ...The perfSONAR toolkit provides a federated performance environment that is now the defacto measurement standard deploy on REN globally.

The proposed workshop is the ...SECOND in the series of perfSONAR workshop that is jointly organised by Internet2, TEIN project and APAN. TransPAC4 has also joined the group to co-organise the workshop.

The workshop will introduce the concept of network performance, and tools monitor tools. ... We will present an overview of network performance measurement tools and techniques, focusing on the deployment of the perfSONAR toolkit. ... Attendees will learn how to install and use perfSONAR, and how to integrate their testing needs with that of the large research community. ... Goals of this tutorial include familiarizing attendees with the proper way to install and configure software, as well as how these tools aid in debugging complex problems. ...


Tutorial Goals

Participants will be given instruction through lecture, as well as hands-on activities. ... The primary goals of the tutorial are:


  • Install, configure, operate, and maintain measurement infrastructure

  • Use performance measurement tools to diagnose network problems

  • Interpret historical measurement results

  • Learn the causes of performance abnormalities, and mitigation techniques

Target AudienceNetwork engineers who are managing the campus and/or National Research and Education networks.
