Worst Case Arrivals of Leaky Bucket Constrained Sources: the Myth of the On-oo Source


We have simulated a set of independent connections limited by leaky bucket shapers and fed into a buuered multiplexer. This scenario is typical of an ATM switch or in a looser sense of an RSVP capable router. We found periodic traac patterns which result in much worse loss rates than the on-oo or tri-state patterns found in literature to date. We give an… (More)
