Abstract: A network operator’s main responsibility is to maintain high performance in a network, a task greatly complicated by the complexity and enormous amounts of raw data that traverse most modern day networks. In response to the difficult of this task, many diagnosis tools have been created, each designed to address a different problem, and frequently require considerable start up time in terms of software and in some cases, hardware. In this paper, we propose a more general measurement framework that monitors traffic at the granularity of the Forwarding Equivalence Class (FEC). As an example of an application, we subsequently demonstrate that this measurement framework can be used to localize network congestion and diagnose the root case of this performance problem. We believe that such a framework can be extended to a wide variety of applications, such as performance benchmarking, network security, and forwarding correctness.
