Packet reordering is an inevitable phenomenon on the Internet. An ideal metric for packet reordering should capture reordering accurately, provide insight into the nature of reordering, and help in the evaluation and analysis of reordering leading to mitigation of its adverse effects. Proposed metrics for packet reordering, namely, reorder density, reorder buffer-occupancy density, reordering extent, and n-reordering, overcome to various degrees the deficiencies of percentage reordering in… CONTINUE READING
