Abstract:

This research was a focused effort to quantify what measurements and metrics can be used to evaluate and improve traffic generator realism. Due to the complexity of network traffic the number of possible measurements are endless. To cope with this complexity we grouped over 150 different measurements into three broad categories based on complexity and required realism for a specific task. This allowed us to measure quantities in a sampling of both real network traffic, and a representative sampling of generated traffic, in a structured manner.
