Comments

The main motivation for this unit is to investigate network performance issues with assistance of the perfSONAR team. The focus is on performance issues and the primary objective is to confirm if a transfer problem observed is network related or not. If it's confirmed a Wide Area Network (WAN) issue then work with perfSONAR team to try to narrow it down to particular network link and thus help identify who might be responsible for it.

What if I have questions which are not dealt with by this FAQ?

Open a GGUS ticket indicating that it should be directed at the WLCG Network Throughput team.
