For the end-to-end measurement of network speed, I implement and evaluate a network performance measurement test framework, which allows for the incorporation of expectations and models specific to the network being tested, as originally proposed in the Model Based Metrics (MBM) IETF Internet-Draft [141. Specifically, I construct two tests within the test framework that measure a network's bulk transfer capacity: the Basic Data Rate Test and Sustained Burst Test. I analyze the models used by MBM to specify measurements that are independent of their vantage point, to statistically evaluate measurements, and to compose measurements over subpaths. I also empirically evaluate the two implemented tests in a virtual network setup. MBM offers a framework for comprehensive and modular end-to-end measurement of network performance.
