( 1 of 137 )United States Patent 8,341,297Swildens , et al. December 25, 2012Latencies and weightings in a domain name service (DNS) system AbstractA method for determining metrics of a content delivery and global traffic management network provides service metric probes that determine the service availability and metric measurements of types of services provided by a content delivery machine. Latency probes are also provided for determining the latency of various servers within a network. The latency probe calculates, for example, the latency from its location to a client's location using the round trip time for sending a packet to the client to obtain the latency value for that client. DNS servers use the latency test results, along with traffic weightings, to determine a server to return for a given DNS name.Inventors: Swildens; Eric Sven-Johan (Mountain View, CA), Day; Richard David (Upton, MA), Gupta; Ajit K.
