As part of a broader organisational restructure, data networking research at Swinburne University of Technology has moved from the Centre for Advanced Internet Architecture (CAIA) to the Internet For Things (I4T) Research Lab.

Although CAIA no longer exists, this website reflects CAIA's activities and outputs between March 2002 and February 2017, and is being maintained as a service to the broader data networking research community.


Set A 500usec Packet Inter-Arrival Time


The following section shows the difference between automatically allowing the interface to detect the line speed and explicitly setting the line speed of an interface for 500usec packet inter-arrival time.

The following Figures show that for both the 10Mbit/sec and 100Mbit/sec line speeds, explicity setting the line speed caused the time stamp values to be slightly more consistent than when allowing the interface to detect the line speed. This was more true for the 10Mbit/sec line speed, as the outliers in Figure 2 are no longer present as seen in Figure 3.

Figure 2: Automatic 10Mbit/sec
Figure 3: Explicit 10Mbit/sec
Figure 4: Automatic 100Mbit/sec
Figure 5: Explicit 100Mbit/sec

The Tables below show the small improvement in variance and standard deviation occuring when the line speed was explicitly set to either 10Mbit/sec or 100Mbit/sec.
