In what is definitely the nicest research report that I have read all year, Tristan Henderson and David Kotz at Dartmouth University report on several errors in their SNMP collection scripts that caused researchers at Dartmouth University to draw incorrect conclusions regarding the university’s wireless network. The paper details both the errors in the scripts and how they were corrected, then reviews the impact on four papers.
Overall, a very nice piece of research. Most people don’t admit their errors after papers are published.
