Computer Science Seminar Room, G1.15
I have been measuring various aspects of the Web and the Internet as part of improving the user's Web experience while reducing load on the network. A global infrastructure has been built around this effort that has led to gathering of data at various levels of the protocol stack. I will present a quick overview of various research projects that I have been involved in over the last four years. The remainder of the talk will focus on some recent examination of netflow data to characterise DNS traffic, via passive and active measurements as well as a graph-based analysis.
