Hi Max,

Thank you for your note!

Some of the issues surrounding TTM measurements are:

- effort/commitment
- membership support and/or community contribution
- technical feasibility and evidence that measurement methodology is sound for the purpose and preferably is standardized

They assume that deployed measurements are part of the membership supported TTM infrastructure.

However, if one is a service provider and considers deploying TTM nodes as part of the network management solution
of their own network, that is another story altogether. There has been recent discussion, within the TTM WG, about this
very issue and I think it would be interesting to take it up again at RIPE 51.

You may also want to take a look at the minutes of RIPE 50 which touch on consumer measured network

I hear about TT box on RIPE Moscow regional meeting yesterday.

One thing I interesting in: is there (or is there plans to implement) an
option to monitor different kinds of traffic? Because of ICMP, VoIP, SMTP,
WEB, FTP and other kinds of traffic often have slightly different priority in
queues, so delays, jitter, packet loss, throughput and sometimes even physic
media (satellite, fiber, copper, radio) of different kinds of traffic can be
slightly different.

You can play with HPING2 utility to figure out that ;)
