Abstract

The burst ratio is a parameter of the packet loss process, characterizing the tendency of losses to group together, in long series. Such series of losses are especially unwelcome in multimedia transmissions, which constitute a large fraction of contemporary traffic. In this paper, we first present and discuss results of measurements of the burst ratio in IP traffic, at a bottleneck link of our university campus. The measurements were conducted in various network conditions, i.e. various loads, ports/applications used and packet size distributions. Secondly, we present theoretical values of the burst ratio, computed using a queueing model, and compare them with the values obtained in the measurements.
