Active Measurement Tools

Active measurement injects traffic into a network to measure properties about that network.

  • ping - a simple RTTandloss measurement tool using ICMP ECHO messages
  • fping - ping variant supporting concurrent measurement to multiple destinations
  • SmokePing - nice graphical representation of RTT distribution and loss rate from periodic "pings"
  • OWAMP - a protocol and tool for one-way measurements

There are several permanent infrastructures performing active measurements:

  • HADES DFN-developed HADES Active Delay Evaluation System, deployed in GEANT/GEANT2 and DFN
  • RIPE TTM
  • QoSMetricsBoxes used in RENATER's Métrologie project
