The effects of war on the Yugoslavian Network.
- Steven Branigan & Bill Cheswick. 1999.

Starting at the end of March, we mapped the Yugoslavian network daily. A chart of the reachability shows that the network was pretty stable until about May 3, 1999. Then, it changed drastically.

Below are some single day network map snapshots for the period from May 1st until May 10. As you can see from the maps, a fair amount of the Yugoslavian network disappears and subsequently reappears on a daily basis.

We also mapped Bosnia during this period. Though our traces showed no common communication routes, quite a bit of Bosnia went away at the same time. We suspect that the two countries probably share power grid connections.
