MonIPÊ Service enabling perfSONAR deployment in Brazil

MonIPÊ is a network performance measurement service developed by RNP (Rede Nacional de Ensino e Pesquisa), the Brazilian Research and Education Network (NREN). This service uses the perfSONAR protocol and the same measurement tools used by similar initiatives from other academic networks around the world, such as Internet2, ESnet and GÉANT. The service has been developed since 2002, mainly focusing on measuring the links of the backbone. Intending to expand the reachability of the service, since 2013, the MonIPÊ service has been revised to improve the service architecture to enable such goal. The main results include the development of a measurement portal and a low cost measurement kit, besides the usage of virtual environment to enable measurements. This paper presents an historical view of the service, contextualising the reader with the efforts done by RNP. This is followed by the presentation of the main results obtained in the MonIPÊ revision. Next, RIPE Atlas, a similar service, is presented and both services are compared. The main focus of this paper follows, presenting the pilot done to evaluate the MonIPÊ service proposed, focusing on implementation, measurement results and users feedback. The paper finishes observing about future work and acknowledgements.
