On the Performance Analysis of Traffic Splitting on Load Imbalancing and Packet Reordering of Bursty Traffic

Executive Summary

Owing to the heterogeneity and high degree of connectivity of various networks, there likely exist multiple available paths between a source and a destination. To be able to simultaneously and efficiently use such parallel paths, it is essential to facilitate high quality network services at high speeds. So, traffic splitting, having a significant impact on Quality of Services (QoS), is an important means to achieve load balancing. In general, most existing models can be classified into flow-based or packet-based models. Unfortunately, both classes exhibit some drawbacks, such as low efficiency under the high variance of flow size in flow-based models and the phenomenon of packet reordering in packet-based models.
