Tools to Give Your Internet Service Provider A Bad Name
Google has recently partnered with the Open Technology Institute and the Planetlab Consortium to come up with Measurement Lab (www.measurementlab.net). It’s described as “an open platform for researchers to deploy Internet measurement tools”.
One of the more interesting tools is Glasnost, which tests for whether Bittorrent is being blocked or throttled by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) Heh. Streamyx is going to fail that, no contest. What about one of those Malaysian WiMAX providers (P1 W1MAX, Amax, Ymax and their ilk)?
Other tools include NANO (detect whether an ISP is degrading the performance of a certain subset of users, applications, or destinations ~ coming soon) and DiffProbe (attempts to detect if an Internet access provider is classifying certain kinds of traffic as “low priority,” providing it with an inferior level of service ~ coming soon).
Are they enough to give your ISP a bad name? Check out the tools now at https://www.measurementlab.net/measurement-lab-tools.htmlPowered by Sidelines
