Modellering och Utvärdering av Internets Applikationer (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The paper presents a modeling and evaluation study of the characteristics of several "classical" Internet applications (SMTP, HTTP and FTP) in terms of user behavior, nature of contents transferred and application layer protocol exchanges. Results are reported on measuring, modeling and analysis of application layer traces collected, at both the client and the server end, from different environments such as university networks and commercial Frame Relay networks. The methodologies used for capturing traffic flows as well as for modeling are reported. Statistical models have been developed for diverse parameters of applications (e.g., HTTP document sizes, FTP file sizes, and SMTP message sizes), which can be useful for building synthetic workloads for simulation and benchmarking purposes. All three applications possess a session oriented structure. Within each session, a number of transactions are performed. For the above mentioned applications, the number of transactions that may occur during a session has been also modeled.
