Which network measurement tool is right for you? a multidimensional comparison study

Esma Yildirim, Ibrahim H. Suslu, Tevfik Kosar
2008 2008 9th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Grid Computing  
In this paper, we take two of the most widely used and accepted network measurement tools as a case study: Iperf and Network Weather service.  ...  The selection of the most advantageous network measurement tool or system for specific needs can be very time consuming and may require detailed experimental analysis.  ...  Acknowledgment This project is in part sponsored by the National Science Foundation under award numbers CNS-0619843  ...

2021 arXiv   pre-print
Efficient and practical representation of geometric data is a ubiquitous problem for several applications in geometry processing.  ...  A widely used choice is to encode the 3D objects through their spectral embedding, associating to each surface point the values assumed at that point by a truncated subset of the eigenfunctions of a differential  ...  A similar baseline which has our same bases may present some deformations which are not linearly architecture but is optimized with a different loss: alignable, and we measure exactly  ...

You can't always sketch what you want: Understanding Sensemaking in Visual Query Systems [article]

Doris Jung-Lin Lee, John Lee, Tarique Siddiqui, Jaewoo Kim, Karrie Karahalios, Aditya Parameswaran
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Our study results reveal that ad-hoc sketch-only querying is not as commonly used as prior work suggests, since analysts are often unable to precisely express their patterns of interest.  ...  Our findings suggest that all three sensemaking processes must be integrated in order to make future VQSs useful for a wide range of analytical inquiries.  ...  • Can you describe how you would use zenvisage++ in your current workflow? • On a scale of 1-10, how interested would you be in adopting this tool for your day-to-day workflow?  ...
