AMIS Project

Software Defined Privacy Preserving Measurement Instrument and Services

AMIS Overview


We design AMIS: Advanced Measurement Instrument and Services to achieve flow-granularity network measurement, sustain scalable line rate, meet evolving measurement objectives and derive knowledge for network advancement. The scalable hardware architecture and software-defined measurement framework are key advantages of AMIS. The thrust of the work is to prototype, deploy and apply an advanced measurement instrument and to enable services for accurate network monitoring and in-depth traffic analysis at exchange points of international R&E networks. The instrument will support flow-granularity measurement and monitoring at line rates at up to 40Gbps, and engage software APIs to examine selected flows, with little impact to the performance of user traffic. Besides direct support of existing measurement tools (e.g., perfSONAR), the proposed instrument will provide libraries and applications allowing project-level or Autonomous System (AS)-level flow statistical queries. With scalable hardware and an open source software stack, the measurement services will equip network operators with effective tools to quantify flow-level network performance, and more importantly to enable in-depth flow analysis through software libraries. Such services bring opportunities for big data analysis of measurement results and packet traces, leveraging a high-performance, open computing infrastructure, the Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC). The knowledge derived from the measurement will benefit network operation and provisioning.
