In this talk we use a number of real examples, drawn from network and system measurements, to demonstrate that performance metrics are not always what we expect. Specifically, we examine cases where TCP-measured latency and throughput, and metrics reported by client browsers, require calibration to avoid inaccurate conclusions. We will also discuss the value of establishing trends, with examples to encourage operators to understand the data before they really need it.
