The workshop will focus on a variety of topics and approaches such as the type of tools being used in a measurement context and also how performance verification/validation is defined in such context, it will also cover any other DevOps activities such as data law protection.

The SIG-PMV workshop scope may cover, but will not be restricted to:
(A) Scenarios/measurement context/environments on:

  • Service orchestration
  • Measurement toolkits and NMaaS
  • Research expertise and implementation
  • Operation and development
  • Data Plan Development Kits (DPDK), netmap, libVMA using raw sockets, tools using etherate, MoonGen, etc.
  • Data analytics of performance measurements (e.g. with pS 4.0.1) with the goal of discovering “useful” information, suggesting conclusions and supporting decision-making.

(B) Performance Verification /Validation
We are specifically interested in:

  • Your definitions of performance verification/validation and on what verification and/or validation means in the context of your work.

(C) Any other related Dev/Ops, research activities with focus on PMV such as:

  • Monitoring and data protection laws (e.g. GDPR): issues and challenges.

The meeting will include a range of presentations on the above topics. Furthermore, a considerable amount of time will be allocated for discussions to enable attendees to review not only various concepts requiring deployment of PMV tools, but will also to evaluate the most appropriate approaches for the solution of these challenges. These discussions will help the SIG in defining the most appropriate recommendations for the community. We will also discuss what gaps or features may be missing from such tools, with a view to engaging with toolkit developers in order to improve the state-of-the-art, where necessary.

Who should attend?
Industry and outreach organisation members, researchers, DevOps teams, NRENs PERT/NOC members, and/or members from other SIG/TFs interested in network performance measurements/monitoring and verification.
