Martin Ellis, Colin Perkins, and Dimitrios P. Pezaros. End-to-End and Network-Internal Measurements of Real-Time Traffic to Residential Users. In MMSys ’11: Proceedings of the 2nd Annual ACM SIGMM Conference on Multimedia Systems, San Jose, CA, USA, February 2011. DOI: 10.1145/1943552.1943567

These datasets contain measurements of CBR RTP traffic, sent from a campus machine to receivers connected to the Internet via ADSL and Cable links.
Dataset-A contains only end-to-end measurements, while Dataset-B also includes some end-to-middle measurements obtained using TTL-limited probes, and packet-pair measurements from which the path capacities can be estimated.

The raw datasets contain the original trace files logged by our measurement tools, and traceroute output for each trace (with IP addresses and hostnames anonymised).
The raw RTP traces have been compressed with crtpdumpz, a compression utility for RTP header logs.
To decompress these, use the crtpundumpz utility (see README).

The processed datasets contain end-to-end queueing delay time series (both dataset-A and dataset-B), and end-to-middle delay measurements and packet-pair capacity measurements (dataset-B only).
