Abstract

In this work, a tool based on packet-dispersion techniques for remotely measuring link capacities is presented. For implementing these techniques, a highly accurate packet timestamping system is presented. This system is fully integrated in the Linux kernel which makes possible to measure extremely exact packet-arrival times. The logic of the measurement system is integrated into a GUI, which reduces the comlexity of using the tool. Finally, the results of a measurement experiment for testing the developed tool are shown, and the lines of future work are exposed.
