Abstract. Service architecture of the Internet becomes more and more complex as it expands as a medium for large-scale distribution of diverse content. Dynamic growth of various content distribution systems, deployed by influential Internet companies, content distributors, aggregators and owners, has substantial impact on distribution of the network traffic and the scalability of various Internet services. The SNIFFER project, presented in this paper, aims to create a service for observing and tracking the long-term growth of various Internet Storage Networks (grids, clouds, Content Delivery Networks, Information-Centric Networks), using the OpenLab and PlanetLab environment. It can be useful to track and map the spreading of such Storage Networks on a global scale, providing more insight into the evolution of Internet towards a content-centric, distributed delivery model.
