Self-Similarity Through High-Variability: Statistical Analysis of Ethernet LAN Traffic at the Source Level

Abstract

A number of recent empirical studies of traffic measurements from a variety of working packet networks have convincingly demonstrated that actual network traffic is <i>self-similar</i> or <i>long-range dependent</i> in nature (i.e., bursty over a wide range of time scales) - in sharp contrast to commonly made traffic modeling assumptions. In this paper, we… (More)
