The Internet sometimes has blockages between user endhosts and server endhosts. These cases of Internet unreachability along certain paths at certain times are called black holes. These black holes represent failure of the Internet to achieve its most fundamental goal: that of full connectivity between all endhosts on the Internet. Present systems to detect and thus help repair black holes in a timely fashion, probe the Internet from several hundred vantage points only and achieve a moderate percentage of black hole detection out of the total. This research seeks to upscale the number of vantage points and so fine tune the configuration of the black hole detection systems, to improve the level of efficient black hole detection. This is important because the prolonged existence of undetected black holes increases the length of time that parts of the Internet are in a disfunctional state.
