Network Performance Workshop: Columbus, Ohio
29-30 September 2005
The Ohio State University
The increasing reliance on network connectivity in all aspects of campus activities is resulting in increased pressure on support staff to quickly resolve network problems. Through participation in performance measurement networks, GigaPoP engineers, campus engineers and end-users can now work together to resolve end-to-end performance problems. The measurement infrastructure is most effectively leveraged when all paths within the network and servers on the edge support on-demand testing beacons. This workshop brings together representatives from various OARnet campuses to maximize these networking efforts.
Internet2's End-to-End Performance Initiative (E2Epi) is working to establish a performance measurement infrastructure across Internet2 campuses and labs, performing analysis of the end-to-end path, and establishing a normal operational mode where network operations, applications, and the end-user easily can determine network capabilities and restrictions.
After this workshop, you will have placed measurement beacons on your campus and learned to use related tests and tools, thus reducing the time required to identify, locate and resolve many of the most common network performance issues by readily isolating the problem.
NOTE: We will continue to publish documents, links, and other information so please check here for updates.
More information on the tools presented at the workshop can be found at: e2epi.internet2.edu.
Registration costs $200/person and is available online at: OARnet-Network-Performance-Workshop-Registration
