Paper Abstract

This paper presents traffic analysis of Frame Bursting (FB) in Single-Input Single-Output (SISO) IEEE 802.3z (Gigabit Ethernet, GbE) Networks. This analysis characterizes the Frame bursting traffic behavior and performance measurement, shows its implications for future research issues. GbE is one of the world's largest Enterprise LAN solutions in terms of the number of concurrent users. FB Mechanism improves the performance of GbE CSMA/CD networks when transmitting short frames by reducing the Extension Field (EF) overhead, and tries to accord the controversy over the cross-layer (Layer2/Layer3) scheme. But FB get some negative effect like Jumbo Frame, long burst will affect the equal opportunity of other transmission. We simulate about 1 Tera-packets by random generation, let the packet pass through form non-FB domain to FB domain, observe that FB behavior like the burst per 100 packets (BPHP), packet per burst(PPB) and its distribution, the burst length in different Input Rate, Input Channel, and Packet Length Distribution Input, The analysis of the burst performance reveals that the geometrical proportion between burst size and burst length, and the inverse proportion between the percentage of Burst and the output utilization after bursting. We find that there is a linear relationship between Input Rate and the burst behavior. As for the burst behavior is highly dynamic complex in variable Number of Inputs, and Packet Length Distribution types.
