MagNets data traces

This page contains data traces from the MAGNETS network backbone obtained using D-ITG. The traces have been collected during a joint research activity between University of Napoli Federico II and the Network Group of the Deutsche Telekom Laboratories in Berlin.

The archives are here in rar format. Each archive contains files with samples of QoS parameters measured over four end-to-end paths. The considered QoS parameters are throughput, packet loss, delay (RTT), and jitter. Samples are obtained, by adopting an active measurement approach, sending probe packets using two packet rates (128 pps and 11000 pps) and packet size of 1024 Bytes. For each path and for each QoS parameter, 20 tests have been performed.

File names have the following format:



xxx = Sender node
yyy = Receiver node
ppp = Packet rate (128 pps or 11000 pps)

Each archive contains several files with the indication of the:

  • measured QoS parameter (throughput, packet loss, delay, or jitter);
  • used protocol (TCP or UDP);
  • iteration number (1 to 20).

Each sample is calculated using non-overlapping windows of 50ms length.
