The Cooperative Association for Internet Data Analysis (CAIDA) is a collaborative undertaking among organizations in the commercial, government, and research sectors aimed at promoting greater cooperation in the engineering and maintenance of a robust, scalable global Internet infrastructure.
CAIDA investigates practical and theoretical aspects of the Internet in order to:
- provide macroscopic insights into Internet
infrastructure, behavior, usage, and evolution,
- foster a collaborative environment in which
data can be acquired, analyzed, and (as appropriate)
- improve the integrity of the field of Internet
- inform science, technology, and communications
members use this organization as a focal point for promoting
greater cooperation in the engineering and maintenance of a
robust, scalable global Internet infrastructure. CAIDA
provides the world with a neutral framework to support
cooperative technical endeavors that have the potential to
be critical in meeting the demands of an exponentially
growing system of networks.
CAIDA seeks to address engineering concerns relating to topics that:
- are macro-level, cross-ISP in nature, e.g.,
infrastructure level measurements and analyses
- evolve technologies to scale up the
performance of the Internet, e.g., web caching,
- promote enhanced understanding of traffic
trends affecting individual and global Internet
infrastructures, e.g., characterization of traffic
behavior using active and passive measurements and the
analysis of routing data
- improve ISPs' ability to manage their networks
through improved traffic analysis and visualization
Insofar as possible, CAIDA serves as a facilitator for collaborations in these topic areas, and provides a framework for commercial and research organizations to jointly address areas of common interest. Tools and methodologies developed by CAIDA are intended to have broad applicability within the industry.
small, inexpensive network measurement nodes, based on the Raspberry Pi, in the
Ark measurement infrastructure at BDIX premises. Raspberry Pi is as capable as a
desktop system and offers a flexible Linux-powered programmable platform for
conducting networking research.
BDIX is hosting equipments and providing support for the above mentioned services as its community services initiative for the local Internet community.
