Modeling ADSL Traffic on an IP Backbone Link


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.
