"The book will be a valuable resource for students and researchersstarting to work on internet measurements." ( IEEE NetworkMagazine, May/June 2007)
Présentation de l'éditeur
∗ measurements of Internet infrastructure: routers, links, networkconnectivity and bandwidth,
∗ measurements of traffic on the Internet: packets, bytes, flows,sessions, etc.,
∗ measurements of various key Internet applications: DNS, Web,Peer–to–Peer, and networked games.
Each area is discussed in depth, covering the challenges faced(such as data availability, data management and statisticalissues), the tools and methods that are available to address thosechallenges, and the state of current knowledge in the area.
In addition, the book contains extensive background material neededfor Internet measurement, including overviews of Internetarchitecture and essential statistical methods. It also coversimportant emerging areas in Internet measurement: anonymizationissues and methods, how measurements can be used for networksecurity, and examples of successful tools and systems currentlyused for Internet measurement. It is essential reading forpractitioners, researchers and analysts of Internet traffic, andstudents taking advanced Networking, Internet Security or otherspecialist courses relying on Internet Measurement.
"This book is a gem! Written by two of the leadingresearchers/practitioners in the field of Internet measurement thisbook provides readable, thorough and insightful coverage of boththe principles and the practice of network measurement. It is amust read for everyone interested in the field."
––Jim Kurose, Distinguished University Professor, University ofMassachussetts
"If you want to measure the Internet, you must read thisbook."
––Bruce Maggs, Vice President, Research, Akamai Technologies;Professor, Carnegie Mellon University
"This extraordinary book is a change in the way of viewing theInternet. Highly recommended!"
