A user cooperative monitoring scheme is considered in which many but variable users' off-the-shelf PCs are involved as measurement end-point nodes (called beacons) to actively measure the performance of end-to-end paths between beacons in order to detect end-to-end performance degradation and identify (narrow down) degraded network links. In the scheme, the measurement paths with beacons are dynamically selected by considering a trade-off between detection coverage and identification accuracy.

The effectiveness and feasibility of our solution are suggested through model simulations.
