ReFlow: Statistics on Internet Traffic

Internet traffic statistics can provide valuable information to network analysts and researchers about the traffic, technologies and main characteristics of today’s networks. For many years Internet2 maintained a public website with statistics about the traffic in the Abilene network. This site was called weekly reports. Although the statistics made available by Internet2 were limited to the particularities of the Abilene network, the weekly report was referenced in many research works published at top conferences and journals. These works typically used Internet2’s weekly reports as a source of information on general Internet traffic. In 2010 Internet2 discontinued their weekly reports project and, hence, we have identified the need for a new public repository containing such kind of information.
