Overview

NTAP is using a secure, remote invocation service to build a network performance testing architecture.

The NTAP team has created PMPs (Performance Measurement Platforms), which are basically commodity servers with security and testing software installed. By placing a few PMPs around the network (each associated with a specific router), one builds an infrastructure that can schedule performance tests along a network path between pairs of PMPs.

Here at the University of Michigan, we plan to place a "few" (maybe 6 or so) PMPs on our core routers and thereby get hopwise throughput/latency data. An important goal of the project is to enable inter-institutional performance tests in a simple, efficient, secure fashion.
