PingER (Ping End-to-end Reporting) is the name
given to the Internet End-to-end Performance Measurement (IEPM)
project to monitor end-to-end
performance of Internet links. It is led by
SLAC and development includes
Originally in 1995 it was for the High Energy Physics community, however, this century it has been
more focused on measuring the Digital Divide from an Internet Performance viewpoint.
The project now involves measurement to
over 700 sites
in over 160 countries, and we are actively seeking
sites to monitor and monitoring sites
for this project, as well as people interested in our data.
