The fluctuating performance of wireless and mobile networks has triggered the need for smart algorithms to assess the user perception, resulting from the quality of network services. While efforts have been done to model the user experience resulting from the network performance, there is still the need for practical methods to assess the user-perceived performance, in the real environment. In this paper, the authors present a set of criteria to observe the user behavior on the Web, passively from the network-level. The criteria are based on the monitoring of TCP control flags and HTTP requests.
