  • PathChirp: Efficient Available Bandwidth Estimation for Network Paths 

    Ribeiro, Vinay Joseph; Riedi, Rudolf H.; Baraniuk, Richard G.; Navratil, Jiri; Cottrell, Les (2003-04-01)
    This paper presents <i>PathChirp</i>, a new active probing tool for estimating the available bandwidth on a communication network path. Based on the concept of "self-induced congestion," PathChirp features an exponential ...
  • Multiscale Nature of Network Traffic 

    Abry, Patrice; Baraniuk, Richard G.; Flandrin, Patrick; Riedi, Rudolf H.; Veitch, Darryl (2002-05-01)
    The complexity and richness of telecommunications traffic is such that one may despair to find any regularity or explanatory principles. Nonetheless, the discovery of scaling behavior in tele-traffic has provided hope that ...
  • A Hierarchical and Multiscale Analysis of E-Business Workloads 

    Menascé, Daniel; Almeida, Virgilio; Riedi, Rudolf H. (2002-01-15)
    Understanding the nature and characteristics of E-business workloads is a crucial step to improve the quality of service offered to customers in electronic business environments. Using a multi-layer hierarchical model, ...
  • Multifractal Cross-Traffic Estimation 

    Ribeiro, Vinay Joseph; Coates, Mark J.; Riedi, Rudolf H.; Sarvotham, Shriram; Hendricks, Brent; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2000-09-01)
    In this paper we develop a novel model-based technique, the Delphi algorithm, for inferring the instantaneous volume of competing cross-traffic across an end-to-end path. By using only end-to-end measurements, Delphi avoids ...
  • Toward an Improved Understanding of Network Traffic Dynamics 

    Riedi, Rudolf H.; Willinger, Walter (2000-01-15)
    Since the discovery of long range dependence in Ethernet LAN traces there has been significant progress in developing appropriate mathematical and statistical techniques that provide a physical-based, networking-related ...
  • A Multifractal Wavelet Model with Application to Network Traffic 

    Riedi, Rudolf H.; Crouse, Matthew; Ribeiro, Vinay Joseph; Baraniuk, Richard G. (1999-04-01)
    In this paper, we develop a new multiscale modeling framework for characterizing positive-valued data with long-range-dependent correlations (1/f noise). Using the Haar wavelet transform and a special multiplicative structure ...
