perfSONAR in the South African NREN: benefits and experiences

SANReN deployed the network's first perfSONAR node in 2012. We now have 13 measuring points covering our entire backbone network and one international link. In this presentation we will share our experiences with the NREN community elaborating on the benefits of perfSONAR and how it has helped us (and TENET) troubleshoot numerous network and data transfer problems. This includes a scenario for the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) astronomy project. A unique consideration for network monitoring in South Africa will then be uncovered followed by our future plans for perfSONAR.
