Small-Time Scaling Beahviors of Internet Backbone Traffic: An Empirical Study

  title={Small-Time Scaling Beahviors of Internet Backbone Traffic: An Empirical Study},
  author={Zhi-Li Zhang and Vinay J. Ribeiro and Sue B. Moon and Christophe Diot},
We study the small-time (sub-seconds) scaling behaviors of Internet backbone traffic, based on traces collected from OC3/12/48 links in a tier-1 ISP. We observe that for a majority of these traces, the (second-order) scaling exponents at small time scales (1ms 100ms) are fairly close to 0.5, indicating that traffic fluctuations at these time scales are (nearly) uncorrelated. In addition, the traces manifest mostly monofractal behaviors at small time scales. The objective of the paper is to… CONTINUE READING
