Temporal Patterns and Properties in Multiple-Flow Interactions
It is widely recognized that today’s Internet traffic is mostly carried by a relatively small number of elephant flows while mice flows constitute up to 80% of all active flows at any given moment in time. Although there are many research works that perform structural analysis of flows based on their size, rate, and lifespan, such analysis says very little about temporal properties of interactions among multiple flows originating from different applications. This paper focuses on temporal analysis of flows in attempt to grasp properties and patterns of flows that are related to application and user behaviour and can be captured only in the temporal view of traffic.
