Abstract
The multicast-based distribution of streaming media is
conjectured to be an important component of future net-
work services. Congestion control has emerged as a ma-
jor hurdle in the large-scale deployment of such services.
Heterogeneity in transmission media, end-systems, and traf-
fic flows have significantly increased the complexity of the
problem. Researchers have sought to address the problem
through such mechanisms as layered encoding and TCP-
style formulae. The end-to-end paradigm has been the guid-
ing principle for these approaches. In parallel, many tools
are being developed that provide snapshots of network in-
ternals. Of interest to us are tools that accurately construct
or estimate the topology of a multicast tree. In this paper, we
