Azure Latency Pilot Study: Part 4 – Variation in results with time

So far in this study, we have only considered the aggregated measurements and how they vary depending on the VMs used. In this post, we will considered how the RTT measurements may have changed over time. The following 5 plots show the RTT as observed by each machine over time. The y axis stops as […]

Azure Latency Pilot Study: Part 2 – Aggregated results

This is post we will be looking at the results for the Azure latency Pilot study described last week. We will starting by looking at the aggregate results, disregarding the time a measurement was taken and which machines the measurement was taken between. The 22332 data points have been processed in Python3, in particular using […]

Azure Latency Pilot Study: Part 1 – Experimental Setup

This post, the first in a short series, discusses a simple overnight pilot study of measuring network characteristics on Microsoft Azure. This study was to be the first of many. Its purpose was to test the tools and gave some initial measurements, thus informing the the design of more substantial measurement studies in the future. […]
