*On the Dynamics of Interdomain Routing in the Internet*

*Giovanni Comarela, PhD Thesis proposal*

*Monday, May 8th, 9am – 11am in MCS 148*


Understanding the dynamics of the interdomain routing system is
challenging. One reason is the size and complexity of the network. Another
is that a single routing or policy change can have far reaching and complex
effects. In this presentation, I will discuss methods to overcome these
difficulties. First, we define a new metric that allows us to measure the
similarity between two prefixes with respect to the state of the global
routing system [1]. Applying this metric over time yields a measure of how
the set of total paths to

each prefix varies at a given timescale.  Second, we present PathMiner [2],
a system to extract large scale routing events from background noise and
identify the AS or link most likely responsible for the event. PathMiner is
distinguished from previous work in its ability to identify and analyze
large-scale events that may re-occur many times over long timescales.
