A New Metric to Quantify Resiliency in Networking


In network protocol engineering resiliency is still a relatively new and somewhat ill-defined concept. Insofar only few studies attempt to define some metric to measure and thus quantify resiliency. In this paper we propose to quantify network resiliency along multiple parameters and further we introduce a two dimensional graphical representation with multiple axes forming an equiangular polygon surface. This method allows to aggregate meaningfully several parameters and makes it easier to visually discern various tradeoffs thus greatly simplifying the process of protocol comparison. Finally, this method is flexible and can be applied to various networking contexts.
