Outage Analysis of a University Campus Network
—Understanding outage and failure characteristics of a network is important to assess the availability of the network, determine failure source for trouble-shooting, and identify weak areas for network availability improvement. However, there has been virtually no failure measurement and analysis on access networks. In this paper, we carry out an in-depth outage and failure analysis of a university campus network using a rich set of both node outage and link failure data. We investigate the aspects of spatial and temporal localities of failures and outages, the relation of link failure and node outage, and the impact of the hierarchical and redundant network design on outage. We find most of link failure events are not caused by node failures; frequent link up-down events may not lead to the corresponding node’s outage; for access layer switches that connect to end hosts, their link up-down events exhibit periodic patterns.
