It’s very useful to have a historical view of network characteristics over time when analysing or troubleshooting network performance. The open source perfSONAR toolkit allows you to measure network throughput, latency, loss, and traffic paths between any pair of deployed measurement points and is now deployed at some 2,000 locations in R&E networks around the world. In this session we’ll consider:

  • The design of the perfSONAR toolkit
  • How to install perfSONAR and set up measurement tests against other perfSONAR measurement points
  • How you can best make use of the Jisc-hosted perfSONAR measurement points on the Janet backbone
  • How to use perfSONAR to assist you with your own network performance troubleshooting
