Abstract-- We study an optimal choice of the buffer size in
the Internet routers. The objective is to determine the minimum
value of the buffer size required in order to fully utilize the
link capacity. There are some empirical rules for the choice of
the buffer size. The most known rule of thumb states that the
buffer length should be set to the bandwidth delay product of
the network, i.e., the product between the average round trip
time in the network and the capacity of the bottleneck link.
Several recent works have suggested that as a consequence of
the traffic aggregation, the buffer size should be set to smaller
