Projects : Network Testing and Performance, Phase V


Please consult our FAQ for the main details of NTAP and SeRIF, what makes NTAP compelling, and lots of background and configuration information.


CITI's previous work, performed under a CITI/ITCom Statement of Work dated May 2, 2006, extended the Network Testing and Deployment (NTAP) framework for secure invocation of network testing tools on remote platforms. The extensions included investigation and demonstrated operation of 10 Gbps hardware within the NTAP framework and the addition of packet capture capability to the testing regime, storing securely for later analysis packets seen at a PMP during a test.

The primary goals of the partnership for FY 2007 are to integrate the thrulay tool (for measuring throughput and packet delay) with NTAP, to instrument and reorganize the data model for improved scalability, and to provide support for NTAP to campus core routers.

Detailed project goals are described in the MOU.
