Software tools developed with the support of Internet2 members enhance the deployment and usefulness of high-performance networking. Forged in the context of Internet2’s systems approach to networking and a commitment to open standards, these open-source tools provide capabilities that help realize the potential of existing network infrastructure, and make implementing new enterprise-wide services easier and more effective. For additional information about these tools, please visit the Internet2 Information Kit, Tools heading, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
BWCTL is a command-line client application and a scheduling and policy daemon that wraps Iperf and Thrulay.
NDT is a user-friendly client/server program that provides network configuration and performance testing to a user's desktop or laptop computer.
OWAMP is a command-line client application and a policy daemon used to determine one-way latencies between hosts.
The pS-Performance Toolkit is a downloadable, pre-configured collection of network performance tools, including NDT, BWCTL, OWAMP and perfSONAR tools and services.
perfSONAR is an infrastructure for network performance monitoring, making it easier to solve end-to-end performance problems on paths crossing several networks.
(Note: This project is now dormant.) The End-to-End Diagnostics Discovery (EDDY) development platform provided a framework for building diagnostic tools within an event correlation architecture.
