Estimates on the packet loss ratio via queue tail probabilities

  title={Estimates on the packet loss ratio via queue tail probabilities},
  author={Andr{\'a}s Gy{\"o}rgy and Tam{\'a}s Borsos},
In this paper we consider the connection between the packet loss ratio (PLR) in a switch with a finite buffer of size L and the tail distribution of the corresponding infinite buffer queue Q. In the literature the PLR is often approximated with the tail probability P(Q > L), and in practice the latter is often a good conservative estimate on the PLR. Therefore, efforts have mainly focused on finding bounds and asymptotic expressions concerning the tail probabilities of the infinite queue… CONTINUE READING
