Internet Traffic Management
Source: Malardalen University
Internet traffic volumes continue to grow at a great rate. For network operators it is important to understand and manage the traffic behaviour in order to meet service-level agreements with their customers and to give end-users good communication performance. This paper considers three aspects of Internet traffic management: web traffic modelling, bandwidth allocation to TCP flows, and traffic engineering. The areas all have in common the need to understand and handle Internet traffic behaviour. For web traffic modelling the goal of the work itself is to understand traffic behaviour and to be able to generate realistic traffic in simulations and lab experiments.
