Network performance has often been studied through active measurements of delay and throughput between specific sites. While important to understanding performance of the core network and among well-connected sites, recent work has begun to explore broadening the subject in two ways. First, to consider network performance to millions of computers at the network's edge, not just in a relatively well-connected mesh. Second, to explore network reliability and outages, in addition to delay and throughput. We will report on our recent progress and ongoing work in these areas.
