Locating Disruptions on Internet Paths Through End-to-End Measurements
In backbone networks carrying heavy traffic loads, unwanted and unusual end-to-end delay changes can happen, though possibly rarely. In order to understand and manage the network to potentially avoid such abrupt changes, it is crucial and challenging to locate where in the network lies the cause of such delays so that some corresponding actions may be taken. To tackle this challenge, the paper proposes a simple and novel approach. The proposed approach relies only on end-to-end measurements, unlike literature approaches that often require a distributed and possibly complicated monitoring/measurement infrastructure.
