Traffic analysis and performance diagnosis in the switched data acquisition and control networks of the BaBar experiment
The BaBar data acquisition and online system is a complex computing
environment built around a switched 100MBit and Gigabit Ethernet
network. In order to understand and tune our systems we complemented
the coarse-grained host-based performance metrics by network traffic
recording and analysis. In this presentation an overview of the
techniques, available tools and results will be given.
