Modeling ADSL Traffic on an IP Backbone Link

Abstract : Measurements from an Internet backbone link carrying TCP traffic towards different ADSL areas are analyzed in this paper. For traffic analysis, we adopt a flow based approach and the popular mice/elephants dichotomy. The originality of the experimental data reported in this paper, when compared with previous measurements from very high speed backbone links, is in that commercial traffic comprises a significant part due to peer-to-peer applications. This kind of traffic exhibits some remarkable properties in terms of mice and elephants, which are described in this paper. It turns out that by adopting a suitable level of aggregation, the bit rate of mice can be described by means of a Gaussian process. The bit rate of elephants is smoother than that of mice and can also be well approximated by a Gaussian process.
