A Comment on Simulating LRD Traffic with Pareto ON/OFF Sources



Long-Range-Dependency (LRD) and Self-Similarity (SS) effects are synthetically generated by multiplexing ON/OFF sources with Pareto distributed ON and OFF times. Dependent on a myriad of parameters, however, it can be questioned if resulting traffic actually exhibits SS and LRD effects. In this paper we evaluate the robustness of these effects in simulator generated traffic to parameter settings. Using a typical simulation for performance evaluation, we measure the degree of SS and LRD.
