This week we are in the QUIC interop in Tokyo, working on the new transport protocol that promises to speed up your connections. Or it may already be doing so :-) And since this is the IETF, running code feels more important than just the specs. Marcus Ihlar and I from Ericsson brought our new latency monitoring tool to the the interop. It performs passive, in-network monitoring of connections or sets of connections, without having to peek into the traffic content itself. It supports TCP, QUIC with the Spin bit, COAP, and few other types of traffic.

The software is open source and available here.

Some more thoughts about why QUIC is important can also be found here.

39,000 ft above Siberia seems like a good place to work on latency measurement tech.

Internet of nasty things?

Nice to find updates like this from my helpful health gadget assistant...

(Besides the style, I think this was also incorrect. I've been making real progress in weight reduction in the last two months, slight bump in the new year's period due to travel... but it got rectified soon. And there are always some fluctuations.)
