Measurement Primitives on Flow Processors

University of California Davis - Robust and Ubiquitous Networking

We strive towards developing foundations for measuring and validating the system behavior, dynamic interactions between components, and end-to-end properties of the Internet. We are interested in exploring measurement primitives that can be mapped onto the flow processor. We will explore the feasibility of dynamically re-configuring multi-resolution flow processing rules at line rate. These rules may be adapted based on online learning and/or sequential hypothesis testing performed at the SDN controller or other middleboxes.

If successful, this project will contribute towards defining new measurement primitives (software and hardware) for SDN or hybrid-SDN networks.
