Paper Abstract

Traffic measurements are collected to gain information about the traffic carried on a network. In this paper, the focus is on those aspects pertaining to network dimensioning and control. Issues related to time scale, read-out period, and traffic classes are discussed. Different measurement types are classified, with each being specified as a meaningful combination of a measurement entity and a measurement basis. To avoid the shortcomings of flow-based measurements, it is proposed that path-based measurements be developed. The use of measurement-based admission control as a means of adaptive resource management is also explored.
