LBNL Net100 Project Information

The Net100 project is a DOE/MICS sponsored High-Performance Networks Program project to develop a network-aware operating system. Visit the official Net100 website at

The Net100 collaboration includes:

The LBNL component of Net100 is called the "Network Tools Analysis Framework (NTAF)". NTAF allows one to easily define network experiments on a mesh of test hosts by specifying what network measurement tools to run, how often to run them, and where to send the results. NTAF runs the tests and sends the result to an archive service for historical analysis.
