Jon Dugan, ESnet

Jon Dugan has a broad background in IP networking and UNIX administration and programming. His experience is primarily in the Research and Education sector and has been an active member of the R&E community. For many years he worked at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) and has served on the SCinet committee for the Supercomputing tradeshow for many years. Recently Jon joined the Network Engineering team at ESnet (Energy Sciences Network). He is the maintainer of the Iperf network throughput measurement tool.

Jeff Boote, Internet2

Jeff Boote is a Senior Network Software Engineer for R&D at Internet2. In this capacity, Jeff implemented OWAMP, a tool for one-way latency measurement that is a sample implementation of IETF RFC 4656, which he co-authored. Jeff also created BWCTL, a tool for scheduling throughput tests that allows multiple users to schedule throughput tests with hosts in the middle of the network in cooperation with regularly scheduled tests. Jeff is heavily involved in the development of the U.S. implementation of the perfSONAR architecture. He is a contributing member to the Open Grid Forum\'s Network Measurement Working Group and Internet2\'s Performance Working Group. Before coming to Internet2 in March of 2002, Jeff worked at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in the Visualization Lab, writing visualization software to translate NCAR research into high- resolution, multi-dimensional animations and also managed NCAR\'s web engineering group.
Abstract: An introduction to the many freely available network measurement tools. This tutorial will give the attendees a good introduction to several tools as well as an idea of what resources are available. The tutorial will begin with a broad survey of available tools and then go in a bit more detail about four particular tools:
