Characterizing End-to-End Packet Delay In the Internet

Jean-Chrysostome Bolot, INRIA

One-line summary: UDP roundtrip measurements and some clever analysis based on queueing theory show that end-to-end delays and packet losses are correlated at short time scales, random at long time scales.

Overview/Main Points


Another neat trick of indirect observation plus a clever model to deduce end-to-end behavior properties for a large system.
