Estimating available capacity of a network connection

  title={Estimating available capacity of a network connection},
  author={Suman Banerjee and Ashok K. Agrawala},
Capacity measures for a network connection across the Internet are useful to many applications. Its applicability encompasses QoS guarantees, congestion control and other related areas. In this paper, we define and measure the available capacity of a connection, through observations at endpoints only. Our measurements account for variability of cross traffic that pass through the routers handling this connection. Related to the estimation of available capacity, we suggest modifications to… CONTINUE READING
