perfSONAR Deployment Guide
ESnet has deployed perfSONAR services at over 30 locations, and recommends that all sites deploy at least 1 perfSONAR host as well. You should deploy a perfSONAR host on the same subnet as the end systems that you want to monitor. You may also want to deploy a perfSONAR host just inside your side firewall to help test and debug firewall performance issues. We recommend DOE SC Labs configure their hosts to use "DOE-SC-LAB" as the "community string".
A description of the various options for installing perfSONAR are available here.
