Abstract

The adjectives "Active" and "Passive" have been used for many years to distinguish between two different classes of Internet performance assessment. The first Passive and Active Measurement (PAM) Conference was held in 2000, but the earliest proceedings available online are from the second PAM conference in 2001 .

Abstract

   This memo provides clear definitions for Active and Passive    performance assessment.  The construction of Metrics and Methods can    be described as either "Active" or "Passive".  Some methods may use a    subset of both Active and Passive attributes, and we refer to these    as "Hybrid Methods".  This memo also describes multiple dimensions to    help evaluate new methods as they emerge.
