- The opening chapters describe the architecture, network layers and movement of traffic around the Internet and provide the requisite background for the material in the book.
- The second section describes the three key axes to be measured: infrastructure, traffic and applications. It examines challenges faced, such as data visibility, statistical difficulties and the practical problems of dealing with large volumes of data. It also presents solutions – methods, tools and state of the art technology.
- The final section of the book presents a set of case studies and points towards fruitful directions for ongoing and future work.
