  author={Ryszard Erazm Jurga and Marian Hulb{\'o}j},
In this paper, the emphasis is placed on various packet sampling methods and their application to network monitoring. We present the motivations for packet sampling on high-speed network links. We give an overview of all known packet sampling techniques, point out their strengths and weaknesses in terms of reliability and accuracy in the estimation in different network traffic parameters. We also provide more details about the adaptive packet sampling, as a way to increase this accuracy. One of… CONTINUE READING
