title = "Interarrival Distribution of a Long-Range Dependent Workload Process",
abstract = "We derive the interarrival distribution of a workload input process which is a variation of the infinite source Poisson process for packet traffic. It accounts for long-range dependence and self-similarity exhibited by real traces in the Internet. The packet generation process is compound Poisson over each session which has a heavy tailed distribution. Considering the dependence induced by the workload, we derive the conditional distribution of the next interarrival time given that a packet has just arrived. This allows the use of the workload as general arrivals to a queueing system for further performance analysis",
