Bivariate statistical analysis of TCP-flow sizes and durations
- 76 Downloads
We approximate the distribution of the TCP-flow rate by deriving it from the joint bivariate distribution of the flow sizes and flow durations of a given access network. The latter distribution is represented by a bivariate extreme value distribution using the Pickand’s dependence A-function. We estimate the A-function to measure the dependencies of random pairs: TCP-flow size and duration, the rate of TCP-flow and size, as well as the rate and duration. We provide a method to test that the achieved estimate of A-function is good and perform the analysis with one concrete data example.
