- The Internet Traffic Archive is a moderated repository to support
  widespread access to traces of Internet network traffic.  The traces
  can be used to study network dynamics, usage characteristics, and
  growth patterns, as well as providing the grist for trace-driven
  simulations.  The archive is also open to programs for reducing raw
  trace data to more manageable forms, for generating synthetic
  traces, and for analyzing traces.  The archive is available on the
  Web at <URL:http://town.hall.org/Archives/pub/ITA>.
 
  There you will find a description of the archive, its associated
  mailing lists, the moderation policy and submission guidelines, and
  the contents of the archive (traces and programs).

- [92-10-20-15-04.39] Peter Danzig and Sugih Jamin of USC have made
  available a report and a source library which simulates realistic
  day-to-day network traffic between nodes.  The library, tcplib, `is
  motivated by our observation that present-day wide-area tcp/ip
  traffic cannot be accurately modeled with simple analytical
  expressions, but instead requires a combination of detailed
  knowledge of the end-user applications responsible for the traffic
  and certain measured probability distributions'.

  The technical report and the source library it describes are
  available via anonymous ftp from
  <URL:ftp://jerico.usc.edu/pub/jamin/tcplib>.  All you need to
  transfer to use the library are: README, brkdn_dist.h, tcpapps.h,
  tcplib.1, and one of libtcp* that matches your setup.  You need
  tcplib.tar.Z only if you must generate the library yourself.  The
  file tcplibtr.ps.Z is the PostScript version of the report.  The
  authors may be contacted at <traffic@excalibur.usc.edu>.

- [93-08-09-15-15.54] Vern Paxson of Lawrence Berkeley Laboratories
  has a report available via anonymous ftp which describes analytic
  models for wide-area TCP connections based upon a set of wide-area
  traffic traces.  The report may be obtained from
  <URL:ftp://ftp.ee.lbl.gov/WAN-TCP-models.{1,2}.ps.Z>.

- [93-05-13-10-54.09] Vern Paxson also has made available another
  report, <URL:ftp://ftp.ee.lbl.gov/WAN-TCP-growth-trends.ps.Z>, which
  provides an analysis of the growth trends of a medium-sized research
  laboratory's wide-area TCP connections over a period of more than
  two years.
