Inter-Endeavour Working Groups
The original goal behind the following inter-Endeavour working groups
is to facilitate discussions and sharing of ideas across multiple
research groups within Endeavour who share similar research interests.
However, the mailing list is open to public, and we welcome everyone
to share their insights and ideas.
Many projects within Endeavour can leverage a wide-area
monitoring/measuring infrastructure that gathers network/traffic
statistics or topology information to make some kind of design/control
decisions. For example, the Clearing House (CH) architecture in
ICEBERG needs to monitor traffic fluctuation and network performance
to adapt resource provisioning across multiple domains before
satisfactory QoS can be achieved. Topology and server-load information
are essential for introspection and optimation in location, routing
and application-level multicast within the OceanStore
project. Information about network performance and load of operators
are needed for Automatic Path Selection (APC) in Ninja to select a
sequence of operators that form the optimal path between the sender
This working group is interested in identifying the common core of
such monitoring/measuring infrastructure, if it exists, where the
lower-level measurements can be shared across multiple
projects/applications. Project/application specific measurement-layers
can then be built on top of this common core.
We have set up a mailing list for the network monitoring group. You
can subscribe to this mailing list by mailing majordomo@endeavour
in the body of the message.
