Is It Me? Understanding the Impact of the Home Network on End-to-End Measurements

By Lucas Di Cioccio, Thomson Upmc Paris, Renata Teixeira and Catherine Rosenberg


End users are often curious to verify the performance of their network connection. Mostly, they accomplish this task with end-to-end active measurements. Unfortunately, the home network can affect end-to-end measurement and can lead to erroneous conclusions. This paper performs measurements in a controlled environment to understand the effect of cross traffic from home on the measurement. We show that although the impact from cross-traffic can be large, it is hard to detect it with active measurements in the home network. Categories and Subject Descriptor
