TechEXtra: perfSONAR Day

A day of discussion about progress being made to enhance existing perfSONAR tools around the world.

Please mark your calendars and plan to join us at TechEXtra: perfSONAR Day, for an enlivening day of discussion about progress being made to enhance existing perfSONAR tools around the world. An international team of developers is presenting an annual progress update, assessing challenges for the upcoming months, providing “best practices” for performing measurement testing in the cloud, and unveiling a new system for monitoring WiFi quality (developed by the University of Michigan).

About perfSONAR

An international collaboration since 2004, perfSONAR is at the forefront of monitoring worldwide network performance. perfSONAR is the performance Service-Oriented Network monitoring ARchitecture, a network measurement toolkit designed to provide federated coverage of paths and help to establish end-to-end usage expectations. There are thousands of perfSONAR instances deployed worldwide, many of which are available for open testing of key measures of network performance. This global infrastructure helps to identify and isolate problems as they happen, making the role of supporting network users easier for engineering teams and increasing productivity when utilizing network resources.
