Meaningful Metrics For Return Path Monitoring (1999)

By Bill Morgan and Craig Chamberlain, Hewlett-Packard

The deployment of advanced data services and the decrease in homes passed per node in order to accommodate more data traffic is putting more pressure on developing a cost effective solution to return path monitoring. This paper will discuss some of the efforts made to date, identify metrics that are currently available for quantifying the performance of the return path, and discuss several new measurements which support this objective. The goal of this paper is provide quality information to the system operator and enable the delivery of higher performance return path services
