Method and system for selecting packets according to volume transmitted by connection

Abstract : The invention relates to a method for selection by a downstream device (3a, 3b, 3c) of data packets of connections of a network transmitted by at least one upstream device (1) according to a predetermined threshold for quantities of data transmitted by said connections. The method consists in the following:- at the beginning of each connection-, initialization by each upstream device (1) of a counter for packets transmitted according to a set of predetermined initial values such that the difference between two initial consecutive values is greater than the predetermined threshold, then incrementation thereof by a predetermined value for each transmitted packet, defining the current counting value of the packet; reception by the downstream device (3a, 3b, 3c) of each IP packet of each connection, and comparison of the predetermined threshold with the difference between the current counting value and the initial value which is immediately lower than the set of initial predetermined values, enabling selection of packets corresponding to connections that have transmitted less data than the predetermined threshold, vis-a-vis packets corresponding to connections that have transmitted more data than the predetermined threshold.
