Periscope / kc claffy

We propose to develop, test, and deploy Periscope, a large-scale measurement platform to unify and automate the discovery and querying of disparate stand-alone LGs into a standardized publicly-accessible service. Removing the considerable burdens that currently exist in LG measurements, will enable more powerful and efficient monitoring and management for opera- tors and engineers who rely on vantage points outside their network to understand, troubleshoot and document local or remote routing issues. Improving the practice of using the already de- ployed measurement tools can address many of the pressing data needs, without investing in entirely new platforms. Collection of aggregated LG usage patterns can provide new insights to network operation centers, and can inform the development, deployment and interoperability with other measurement tools. (partly funded by nsf, dhs, comcast, but needs more support)
