Measure overall network availability

  • From: Joe Shen

Hi,

is there any recommended method to measure overall
network availability? 

Currently we use packet loss rate as indication of
network availability, but to my understanding this
just means the possiblity of e2e communication degrade
but not the network availability.

regards

Joe
