there are currently some research projects going on which try to
measure the health and state of the Internet on a global and local
scale. University of Waikato Computer Science is hosting a skitter
server for CAIDA, the UCSD-based Internet Research Corporation.
The skitter project involves pinging (ICMP traffic) a larger
number of "interesting" hosts on the Internet and drawing some
conclusions about reachability, network load, performance etc.
These people are expanding their scope and would like to find
new destinations they could ping on a regular basis. Web servers
are of high interest.
If you are a network administrator, web administrator etc, who is
willing to support such research (and potentially receive valuable
information from active network measurements), please get back to
me as soon as possible.
Thank you for your time.

We might add that for these measurements, web server are preferred
targets. Please do not include any routers or workstations in your
lists of additions to the destination lists.
We will add everyone's additions next week, then distribute a new
dataset soon after.
Thanks for your help.
Dear Skitter-Asia Collaborators,
We have now collected sufficient data using our initial Skitter
destination list that we can now entertain making additions to the
list. If you have a suggestions please provide us with the destination
host name and IP address. We would prefer candidates with diverse
characteristics. For example, we prefer to have examples from
commercial, education, non-profit, network, and government sectors.
Also destinations from different geographical locations are of
interest. Typically we monitor only one host per domain name
,) but exceptions are made for interesting
Please send your suggestions to me along with any additional
information you can provide.
