Abstract

We present new measurements of network traffic in a switched Ethernet system and file size/webserver request size distributions. We find that the distribution of packet rate changes can be well described by a (truncated) Cauchy distribution. Similarly, for the main contributors to the network traffic, file and web document requests, we can show that the distribution is similarly described by a (truncated) Cauchy distribution.
