Pageview statistics are usefhl to describe and predict the behaviour of clients on internet sites. From a theoretical point of view, the number of pageviews during a day should be Poisson distributed. However, violation of stationarity assumptions causes other distribution types to fit pageviews data usually much better. In this paper a procedure is described that explains how to homogenise the data (with detrending techniques) and allows several distribution fimctions as possible candidates. A… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Effect of Caching in a Broker Based Context Provisioning System
This paper analyzes the effect of using a context cache in a broker-based context provisioning system and shows notable improvement in the context query response time. Expand
Context-aware service utilisation in the clouds and energy conservation
This paper presents the concept of a context-brokering component to aid in coordination and communication of context information between mobile devices and services deployed in a cloud infrastructure, with results signifying reduction in energy consumption. Expand


Data Mining for Measuring and Improving the Success of Web Sites
This study proposes a methodology to improve the “success” of web sites, based on the exploitation of navigation pattern discovery, and presents a theory, in which success is modelled on the basis of the navigation behaviour of the site's users. Expand
Network Performance Implications of Variability in Data Traffic
Through analysis of usage logs at a range of caches it is shown that WWW traffic is not a Poisson arrival process, and that it displays significant levels of self-similarity, which means that conventional approaches to network planning and engineering will tend to reduce efficiency and increase costs. Expand
Traffic model and performance evaluation of Web servers
A traffic model at the session level, formulated as a stochastic marked point process, which describes when users arrive and how they browse the server is presented, and it is shown that the aggregate traffic is self-similar in most cases, and that the Hurst parameter is increasing in the traffic intensity.

The results of a measurement campaign on calls directed to Internet Service Providers are used to analyze models for their arrival process and for their holding time, selecting the hyperexponential model for the probability density function of the call holding times. Expand
Statistical concepts
It's important for you to start having that hobby that will lead you to join in better concept of life and reading will be a positive activity to do every time. Expand
An empirical study of the characteristics of Internet traffic
The design and development of a system for measuring Internet traffic and the characteristics of this traffic are described and it is proved that the above results are obtained from the backbone traffic and can be applied to the Internet in general. Expand
Association Models for Web Mining
How statistical association models and, specifically, graphical models, can be usefully employed to model web mining data are described and model selection procedures are discussed. Expand
Statistical Models for Data Mining
The background to the papers presented in this special issue of “Statistical models for data mining” is reviewed and a short introduction to each is given. Expand
