A Network Measurement Framework for Named Data Networks


In this poster, we propose a network measurement framework for NDN. We define the goals of network measurement and discuss how these goals can be achieved by identifying the necessary measurement operations that must be built on top of NDN’s primitives. Our main design goal is to empower NDN with a built-in measurement framework that can support multiple use cases and can be used by different applications that need to produce and/or consume network measurements. The framework uses NDN’s native Interest/Data exchange to request and collect both active and passive measurements. Being a work-in-progress, we also discuss open issues and future work.
