Parameter Estimation Problem of a Distribution Model of Outgoing Traffic Volume from Computer Network Hosts*

  • A. A. Makarov
  • G. I. Simonova

On the basis of extensive statistical data, this paper proposes a mathematical model to describe the volume probability distributions of outgoing traffic from computer network hosts. The proposed model is based on both the Gaussian distribution of probabilities and the unknown asymmetric distribution. Here the portion of the observations in the joint sample related to the unknown distribution is relatively large. Preliminary estimates are given for the parameters of the proposed model, and the problem of finding in some sense, optimal estimates and studying their properties is posed.
