Monitoring IP Multicast in the Internet: Recent Advances and Ongoing Challenges

Monitoring IP Multicast in the Internet:
Recent Advances and Ongoing Challenges
Kamil Sarac, Member, IEEE and Kevin C. Almeroth, Senior Member, IEEE
Abstract-- Multicast was one of the first "value-added" services
to be developed and deployed in the Internet. In evaluating the
success of multicast, if ubiquitous deployment has been the goal,
multicast has not been successful. However, if widespread use of
multicast as a bandwidth-savings technique has been the goal,
multicast has indeed been successful. Upon closer investigation,
one of the reasons for only partial success is a lack of support
for service management. Multicast is particularly hard to manage
in the inter-domain where it has been less successful, but easier
to manage within a domain where network administrators have
more control and smaller networks to manage. In this paper we
survey some of the recent service management efforts, efforts
that have been successful in the intra-domain, but fall short for
the inter-domain. In particular, we focus on important topics
like (1) monitoring multicast reachability between sources and
receivers; (2) understanding the different challenges and solutions
