Abstract

We propose a platform for the rapid prototyping of active measurement tools to collect network characteristics. The proposed platform provides its users with basic active measurement primitives upon which sophisticated active measurement tools can be prototyped quickly, practically, and efficiently through scripts in the Lua scripting language. We validate the platform as well as show its flexibility and accuracy through experiments on a local testbed and also on Planet-lab.
