Evaluating Networked Systems

Evaluating Networked Systems (“ENS”) is a class I’m teaching at the University of Utah.

The goal of this course is to acquaint students with the theory and practice of evaluating systems that have a network as a major component. At its conclusion, students should be prepared to conduct rigorous evaluations as part of their own research, as well as looking with a critical eye at evaluations they find in the literature. It will have a major hands-on component, using testbed facilities such as EmulabGENI, and PlanetLab. Topics will include experiment design, avoiding typical evaluation pitfalls, basic statistical analysis of empirical data, presentation of results, and use of the available tools.

The syllabus from the Spring 2014 edition of this class can be found here

The complete “source” for the class, including assignments, homework, lecture notes, the syllabus, etc., is publicly available in a git repository for easy “forking”.

Handouts, assignments, syllabus, etc. from the Spring 2014 edition of this class can be found at the bottom of this post.
