We propose a novel probing scheme capable of discovering shared bottlenecks among multiple paths between two multihomed hosts simultaneously, without any specific help from the network routers, and a subsequent grouping approach for partitioning these paths into groups. Simulation results show that the probing and grouping have an excellent performance under different network conditions.
