- The goal of this paper is to identify and to discuss the scalability issues of an availability analysis in large scale multicast networks as well as to introduce a solution for this task. The utilization of IP multicast in economically critical environments such as for the distribution of stock exchange prices is increasing. Therefore, the availability requirements on this service are increasing as well. Unfortunately, no measurement tools exist which determine the global multicast reachability to provide the required availability information. A possible solution is discussed in this paper, which claims to provide a high scalable measurement environment.
