Abstract:

We suggest the MGinfinity input process as a viable model for representing the heavy correlations observed in network traffic. Originally introduced by Cox, this model represents the busyserver process of an MGinfinity with Poisson inputs and general service times distributed according to G, and provides a large and versatile class of traffic models. We examine various properties of the MGinfinity process, focusing particularly on its rich correlation structure. The process is shown to effectively portray short or long-range dependence simply by controlling the tail of the distribution G. In an effort to understand the dynamics of a system supporting MGinfinity traffic, we study the large butter asymptotics of a multiplexer driven by an MGinfinity input process.
