Internet measurement for research and education
Via our Iris interface, Dioptra provides Internet measurements, for the Internet research community, network operators, regulators, and those interested in cyber-security.
Dioptra runs a first year Masters introduction to computer networking course and a second year Masters course on Internet measurements. These both use Dioptra platforms to allow students to conduct real world measurements from vantage points scattered around the world.
The network measurements course is also offered as a MOOC.
Dioptra operates two research platforms:
A globally distributed edge cloud for Internet researchers.
EdgeNet is based on industry-standard cloud software; Docker for containerization and Kubernetes for deployment and node management. If you know how to use Docker and Kubernetes, you know how to use EdgeNet!
A system for launching active measurements from distributed vantage points across the Internet.
Dioptra develops and maintains free open source software:
An improved version of the well-known network diagnosis and measurement tool that can trace all of the load balanced routes between a source and a destination.
Kubernetes extensions for the edge cloud.
Please see our GitHub repository.
Dioptra conducts research on internet measurement and the edge cloud.
Our publications can be found on HAL (coming soon).
