Network Probes, Statistics, and Analysis

by Steve Dougherty for Freenet Project Inc

Next to nothing is known about Freenet's actual link length distribution. This makes it very difficult to improve as it is only measured indirectly. I therefore propose to write more comprehensive and security-conscious probes, write tools to more thoroughly and quickly present information gathered by the probes, and attempt to simulate or even resolve the revealed network problems.
