I am interested in measuring the performance of cloud routing and cloud based services. To monitor performance, I would like to use PlanetLab vantage points to perform these measurements. These measurements would include issuing pings, traceroutes, and small html get requests.
The experiment will measure performance across multiple cloud providers, including but not limited to CloudLab and Google Compute Engine. At all of the measured cloud locations, I will only measure the performance of virtual machines running services under my control. Because these virtual services are also under the control of the experiment, we will issue traceroutes back to the PlanetLab infrastructure. At each node, the expected measurement rate would be four (4) sets of measurements (each set contains one ping, one traceroute, and two get requests) every 20 minutes and will last for approximately one month.
