Internet Outage Datasets

This web page documents our datasets for Internet outages. Our datasets are available upon request.

Datasets from our TR on Diurnal Networks

For the following paper [1] [2] and techreport we use the following dataset A12w, although we also evaluated A12c and A12j:

name shortname Start Date Duration /24 Blocks
internet_outage_adaptive_a12w-20130424 A12w 2013-04-24 35 days 3703717
internet_outage_adaptive_a12c-20130424 A12c 2013-04-24 35 days 3703717
internet_outage_adaptive_a12j-20130424 A12j 2013-04-24 35 days 3703717

Datasets from Our Paper on Trinocular

For this paper [1] we use the A7 dataset, containing 3 sites, ISI (w), CSU (c) and Japan (j):

name shortname Start Date Duration /24 Blocks
internet_outage_adaptive_a7w-20130212 A7w 2013-02-12 2 days 3648487
internet_outage_adaptive_a7c-20130212 A7c 2013-02-12 2 days 3648487
internet_outage_adaptive_a7j-20130212 A7j 2013-02-12 2 days 3648487

We have also collected a similar, but much longer month long dataset, A12:

name shortname Start Date Duration /24 Blocks
internet_outage_adaptive_a12w-20130424 A12w 2013-04-24 35 days 3703717
internet_outage_adaptive_a12c-20130424 A12c 2013-04-24 35 days 3703717
internet_outage_adaptive_a12j-20130424 A12j 2013-04-24 35 days 3703717

As described in the paper, our system is currently running 24x7. Subsequent doutage datasets are listed on our general list as datasets with "outage" in their name.

Dataset A12 was also used in analysis of the diurnal internet.

Datasets to Studies of Hurricane Sandy

We have studied Hurricane Sandy first in a 2012 technical report then later in the Trinocular paper and presented this work in several talks This analysis uses the raw data in Internet Survey 50j.

Datasets from our Technical Reports On Outage Detection

Earlier work on outage detection (pre-trinocular) was in this technical report: and revised analysis is in the Trincular paper The technical report includes some unique datasets.

This work analyzes:
