Abstract: Network performance monitoring is essential to the operation of networks of any significant size, and its need is only enhanced for the Grid. Without it Grid middleware and applications cannot optimise their performance by adapting to changing network conditions, networks cannot be debugged, an essential step in supporting data intensive applications as simple over-provisioning is insufficient, and the Grid cannot be " self healing " , or apply the SLAs required for " utility computing " model. We present an update of the international work we lead through the GGF, to allow network authorities to share performance data across multiple administrative domains to facilitate true end-to-end monitoring (a holy grail in this problem space) and to allow middleware and applications access to that same data.
