Many HEP sites have been participating in a project to monitor end-to-end
Internet performance. A few sites have acted as central collection,
analysis and report generation points
for the large amount of data generated. The reports are useful
for short term trouble identification, long term projections, and
the evaluation of Internet services. The work
is illustrated by examples of both detailed and more general
Internet performance.
