This repository contains a compressed set of logs representing a week's worth of ping times on Amazon AWS between:

  • us-east-1, us-west-1, us-west-2, eu-west-1, sa-east-1, ap-northeast-1, ap-southeast-1
  • us-east-1b, us-east-1c, us-east-1d
  • Three hosts in us-east-1b

All servers were m1.small instances.

For more information, please see my blog post or contact me.

If you wish to use these traces in an academic publication, please reference Highly Available Transactions: Virtues and Limitations (bib), to appear in VLDB 2014.

Note that, according to this paper, ping may overstate RTT variance.
