ABSTRACT Measuring the global Internet is a perpetually challenging task for technical, economic and policy reasons, which leaves scientists as well as policymakers navigating critical ques- tions in their field with little if any empirical grounding. On February 12-13, 2009, CAIDA hosted the Workshop on Ac- tive Internet Measurements (AIMS) as part of our series of Internet Statistics and Metrics Analysis (ISMA) workshops which provide a venue for researchers, operators, and poli- cymakers to exchange ideas and perspectives. The two-day workshop included presentations, discussion after each pre- sentation, and breakout sessions focused on how to increase potential and mitigate limitations of active measurements in the wide area Internet. We identified relevant stakeholders who may support and/or oppose measurement, and explored how collaborative solutions might maximize the benefit of research at minimal cost. This report describes the find- ings of the workshop, outlines open research problems iden- tified by participants, and concludes with recommendations that can benefit both Internet science and communications policy.
