SAIL (Statistically Accurate Internet Loss Measurements)

This is the homepage of SAIL, a rigorous statistical method to analyse the results of loss measurements. SAIL uses algorithms from Hidden Semi-Markov Models to estimate the parameters of the real loss process from measurement. It then computes the real loss rate and its variance. SAIL is light-weight and runs in linear time (on the number of samples). Below you can find the Matlab implementation of SAIL, together with the measurement data.


The complete MATLAB package can be downloaded here. The individual components are described below.


We have more than 50 GB of loss measurement data. Below are samples of the dataset in the text format that SAIL uses. If you want the complete set, please contact Hung Nguyen on hung(dot)nguyenATadelaide(dot)edu(dot)au.
