Measurements and Benchmarking of Experiments

Session chair: Jerker Wilander

Jointly organized by members of the FIRE facility projects CREW, OneLab2 and BonFIRE.

Scope: In the context of FIRE experimental infrastructures, we define benchmarking as the act of measuring and evaluating networking protocols, devices and networks, under reference conditions, relative to a reference evaluation. The goal of the benchmarking process is to enable fair comparison between different networking solutions, or between subsequent developments of a system under test. Measuring and benchmarking of wired and wireless networking solutions as well as computer systems and applications is put forward as a research topic in several research projects such as CREW, OneLab2 and BonFIRE. This session will first give an overview on general 'measurements and benchmarking' concepts, followed by 3 presentations with very concrete results on how 'measurements and benchmarking' is applied during experimentation in a few specific research areas. This session provides sufficient time for discussion, where we aim to pinpoint the demands for the FIRE facilities and the corresponding tools that should be provided.

Contact person for the session: Ingrid Moerman (IBBT, Belgium)
