Despite the increasing degree of multi­homing, path and
data redundancy, and capacity available in the Internet, to­
day's clients experience outage rates of a few percent when
accessing Web sites. MONET (``Multi­homed Overlay NET­
work), is a new system that improves client availability to
Web sites using a combination of link multi­homing and a
cooperative overlay network of peer proxies to obtain a di­
verse collection of paths between clients and Web sites. This
approach creates many potential paths between clients and
Web sites, requiring a scalable way to selecting a good path.
MONET solves this problem using a waypoint selection al­
