Application Layer Tracing for Performance Evaluation
Blekinge Institute of Technology, Department of Telecommunications and Signal Processing2002 (English)Conference paper (Refereed) Published
The paper reports on a set of non-intrusive tools that can be used for the performance evaluation of "classical" Internet applications such as Email, WWW, and FTP. At the application layer, key factors influencing the events are stochastic aspects of user behavior, protocol characteristics and sizes of contents transferred. A multi pronged approach involving application log analysis, direct probe of the WWW pages, and network flow analysis has been used. The measurement infrastructure is presented and diverse software tools for gathering of application layer properties are described in detail. The motivation is to build stochastic models for the key elements of application layer that can be further used to build up an integrated end-to-end performance testbed for conducting traffic engineering experiments.
