Revisiting the Notion of Origin-Destination Traffic Matrix of the Hosts That Are Attached to a Switched Local Area Network
Source: Covenant University
There is a widely held notion in the literature that there is an origin-destination traffic matrix for all the hosts (end nodes) that are attached to any switched local area network. This is usually in relation to the need to calculate the end-to-end (or maximum end-to-end) delays between all the end nodes that are attached to the network, for the sole purpose of using these delays values to design upper-bounded delay switched local area networks, in efforts at solving the delay problems of this class of networks. In this paper, the authors show that this notion of origin-destination traffic matrix for all the hosts that are attached to a switched local area network does not seem to be correct.
