About This Course

This course is a hands-on introduction to internet measurements. You will learn about measuring the structure of the internet and the routes through that structure, about delays, losses and connectivity, about bandwidth, and about traffic.

You will see how to make these measurements, and you will understand what you can and cannot learn from them. We teach you how to run measurements from any computer. This course provides you with the ability to launch measurements on PlanetLab Europe, a platform consisting of internet connected servers at over 150 locations around the continent.
