Characterizing ICMP Rate Limitation on Routers

Abstract : In the last decade, path discovery has been extensively covered in the literature. In its simplest form, it generally works by sending probes that expire along the path from a host to a destination. It is also known that network administrators often configure their routers to limit the amount of ICMP replies sent, a common practice typically referred to as ICMP rate limitation. In this paper we attempt to characterize the responsiveness of routers to expiring ICMP echo-request packets. Our contribution is twofold: first, we provide a detailed analysis of how routers are most commonly configured to respond to expiring packets; next, we show that for the vast majority of routers, the measured round-trip time is not affected by the probing rate.
