Traffic profile, mainly its self-similarity properties, can have crucial impact on the network performance. In this regard, we evaluate traffic profile of Ethernet traffic. We have performed a measurement of the traffic on Ethernet network. Captured data has been analyzed from the protocol point of view, with the stress on the self-similarity, LRD and SRD properties. To evaluate these characteristics, properties of wavelet transform (DWT) are deployed and, based on α parameter, scaling property of traffic is estimated. We show that self-similarity is present in analyzed data and that it depends on analyzed time scale and on analyzed protocol.

    The article discusses the growth of fibre channel over Ethernet (FCoE). FCoE consists of an fibre channel (FC) frame encapsulated inside Ethernet. It is reported that FCoE is currently available at one speed only (10 Gbps), and its adoption therefore depends on the adoption of 10-Gbps Ethernet....
