Abstract

In this paper, we propose a scheme to measure the packet processing time of a host using Internet Control Message Protocol packets and a packet-capture line card in the same network segment. The proposed scheme is not affected by clock synchronization, the packet generation time, and the transmission speeds of the host under measurement. We show the experimental results of the proposed scheme tested on different hosts and under different transmission speeds, including 1000 Mb/s.
