Slide 18 of 35
XIWT/IPWT want to:
Measure performance of members' own networks
Get tests to validate and understand what to recommend to other commercial customers and for what purposes.
Build a community within XIWT so can evolve it to address harder issues.
Have chosen the PingER tools for deployment
Collection sites (mar-98): West Group, Bell South (2), Digital (2), HP, Intel, Hughes, NIST, SBC
They are looking for an analysis/archive site
SAS/Oracle can cost several tens of thousands of dollars
Need indexing for rapid lookup
Usually a bit of overkill as an analysis tool (donít use much in the way of sophisticated statistics).
