Various tools are available in market to measure packet loss in the end-to-end networks. But all the existing tools are not able to calculate packet loss in the network accurately. So measuring packet loss efficiently is still an open problem in the networks due to relatively occurrence and short duration of packet loss. The aim of the authors' research is to understand how to efficiently calculate packet loss in the network. In this paper, they presented an algorithm for measuring packet loss in the network. To evaluate the performance of the proposed algorithm, they simulate the algorithm in the NS2 simulator. Their experimental results shows the trade-offs between impact on the network and measurement accuracy.
