The Distribution of File Transmission Duration in the Web Ronit Nossenson
 

Summary: The Distribution of File Transmission Duration in the Web

Abstract
It is well known that the distribution of files
transmission duration in the Web is heavy-tailed
[9]. This paper attempts to understand the rea-
sons for this phenomenon by isolating the three
major factors influencing the transmission du-
ration: file size, network conditions and server
load.
We present evidence that the transmission-
duration distribution of the same file from the
same server to the same client in the Web is
Pareto and therefore heavy tailed. Furthermore,
transmission delay for a specific client/server
pair is not significantly affected by file size: all
files transmitted from the same server to the
same client have a very similar transmission du-
ration distribution, regardless of their size.
