Title: End-to-End Performance Initiative

End-to-End Performance Initiative
March 9, 2001 Internet2 Spring Member Meeting
The Problem
  • Even with high bandwidth network links, the
    Internet2 community often does not see expected

E2E Perf Initiative Vision
  • To enable the end-user to obtain optimal
    performance from the available current and future
    infrastructure on a routine basis.

Work to Date
  • Initial planning in the late fall and winter
  • Campus Workshop in San Diego
  • Planning Meeting in Ann Arbor
  • Recasting of work plan
  • Formation of Design Team
  • Design Team White Paper
  • Spring Member Meeting

Design Team
  • The End-to-End Performance Initiative Design Team
  • George Brett, NCSA/NLANR DAST/Web 100
  • Claudia de Luna, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory
  • Doug Gale, OARnet
  • Andy Germain, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
  • Terry Gray, University of Washington and
    Pacific/Northwest GigaPoP
  • Wendy Huntoon, PSC/NLANR NCNE
  • Basil Irwin, Web100
  • Cheryl Munn-Fremon, University of Michigan
  • Ronn Ritke, SDSC/NLANR MOAT
  • Matthew Schmitz, Cisco Systems
  • Internet2 Staff Participants
  • Guy Almes, Laurie Burns, Steve Corbató, Ted
    Hanss, Russ Hobby (chair), Kathleen Young, and
    Matt Zekauskas.

The Initiative is
  • A Coordinating Structure
  • Will not replace current activities in the area
  • Will encourage work where there are missing
  • Coordinate activities to support E2E Performance
  • Help to move developments into operation
  • A Communications Facilitator
  • Promote communications for common areas
  • Tools for cross-area communications
  • A Knowledge Repository
  • Collect and disseminate knowledge gained
  • Distribute tools developed

  • The Initiative is Structured Around Partnerships
  • Applications Communities
  • Network Operators
  • Gigapops
  • Network Researchers
  • Campuses
  • Corporate partners
  • Internet2 Staff

Applications Communities
  • They are the reason to have the network!
  • The Initiative will
  • Work closely with selected test communities
  • Focus on helping them do what they want to do
  • Use their key applications to evaluate and
    improve network performance

Campuses include the Ends in End-to-End
  • Campus concerns include
  • Campus Users - overall performance and end
    result of the application.
  • System Administrators - computer hardware and
    operating system.
  • Network Operators - performance of the network.

Focus Areas
  • Applications End-to-End
  • Host Computer and Operating Systems
  • The Network
  • Operational Support

End-to-End Applications
  • Establish Communities and Applications
  • Test Case Disciplines to study and resolve their
  • Identify Key Applications to Test Performance
  • Develop Techniques and Tools for
  • Applications Design - Resource Determination
  • Implementation - Software Libraries
  • Operation - lead to capabilities to isolate

Host Computer and Operating System
  • Techniques and Tools to Analyze
  • The Various Computer Sub-systems and Software
  • Different Hardware/Operating System Combinations
    and present options for to obtain optimal
  • Optimal Computer Configurations
  • Publicize Methodologies, Tools, and Results
  • Case Studies, Best Common Practices
  • Analysis Tools for Different Computers

The Network
  • Establish a Common Measurement Infrastructure
  • Standard Instrumentation Locations along the Path
  • Common Data Sets Collected
  • Applications Reference Servers
  • Download of Special Testing Software
  • Develop Analysis Tools
  • Study Network Behavior
  • Pinpoint Source of Problems
  • Determine the Health of the Network

Operational Support
  • Develop a Coordination and Communication
    Structure for Support Personnel Groups
  • Computer System Administrators, LAN Managers,
    Campus NOCs
  • Access to Experts
  • Cross-Campus Support
  • Establish the Performance Evaluation and Review
    Framework (PERF)
  • A Coordination Structure to Study and Resolve
    Hard Problems
  • Help populate the Knowledgebase for Known

Operational Support
  • Other Operational Developments
  • Knowledgebase creation and use
  • Cross-Domain Trouble Ticket System for use by
    NOCs (initially) and End-Users (later)
  • Standard Sets of Operational Data that everyone
    can use to determine network capabilities and

Initiative Management and Support
  • Initiative Structure
  • Series of Calls for Participation (CFPs)
  • Participation by Internet2 Community Partners
  • Initiative Management Structure
  • An Initiative Advisory Committee
  • Internet2 Provides
  • Initiative Management
  • Communications Tools
  • Information Resources and Tools
  • Evaluation and Assessment

Show Me the Money
  • UCAID has committed 1.5 million in project
    funding to provide central coordination and
  • Initiative coordination activities include
    proactively identifying potential funding sources
    and developing funding opportunities
  • Potential funding agencies have participated in
    the planning stages and discussions will continue

Next Steps
  • Follow up discussion at 1030am in Maryland A
  • White paper still open for comments
  • Design Team work continues
  • Produce an action plan and post
  • Develop the Calls for Participation
  • Specify review process
  • Issue first set of CFPs, and begin work in
    specific areas
  • Hire permanent director
  • Form an advisory structure
