Trace Collection

Network traffic traces captured in the context of data centers or the Internet’s backbone are a fundamental ingredient for future research in the field of communication technologies.

Unfortunately, publicly available data on network traces is scarce today, for various reasons. With this platform, we want to contribute to the collection and distribution of traffic traces in an accessible format. To this end, we are also looking for contribution.

If you have traces you can share with the community, please contact us.

On the Complexity of Traffic Traces and Implications
The complexity map of six real traces (colored circles) and four reference points (grey circles at the
corners). HAD, WEB, and DB refer to Facebook’s Hadoop, web, and database traces.
