New Traceroute Binary on M-Lab platform
M-Lab has always committed to provide traceroute data for the tests running on M-Lab platform. Since we launched new platform in 2019 Q4, the new traceroute binary, Scamper, replaced Paris Traceroute on all our servers. Our BigQuery table for traceroute now has unified schema to cover both the legacy Paris Traceroute test data and new Scamper data. This blog is to analyze the difference between the legacy data and new data.
Platform Transition Update - NDT Dataset, Tables, & Views
If you’ve been following our blog over the last few months, you know M-Lab has been working toward a complete server platform upgrade. As of November 20, 2019, all M-Lab servers are now managed by Kubernetes, running Docker container services for all experiments. This transition has greatly improved our platform management, this post addresses the short term impact on downstream data users and applications, and outlines a temporary solution and our longer term for new NDT tables/views.
