Flow Clustering Using Machine Learning Techniques

17

Sep

2010

Packet header traces are widely used in network analysis. Header traces are the aggregate of traffic from many concurrent applications. We present a methodology, based on machine learning, that can break the trace down into clusters of traffic where each cluster has different traffic characteristics. Typical clusters include bulk transfer, single and multiple transactions and interactive raffic, amongst others. The paper includes a description of the methodology, a visualisation of the attribute statistics that aids in recognising cluster types and a discussion of the stability and effectiveness of the methodology.
