Network Complexity Index

How to define network complexity based on DNS request and response characteristics.

What is the usage characteristic of my network?

Tapestry is a new framework for characterization of network complexity through communities where DNS request/responses dictate the definition of community traffic density through the calculation of a network complexity index: flowforwarding.org/tapestry.

We have proposed a GENI deployment scenario to test such a complexity index calculation at scale with real DNS entries on GENI during the GEC19 demo session.


Network complexity index utility described through a demo during GEC21.

How complex is content access in my network?

Network complexity index may provide insights into how we visualize the source-destination pairs and their associated interactions to better plan and provision our networks. We provided a demonstration of such utility of NCI during GEC21 demo session.
