RTT estimation last part


“To do this, find the top 3 pair of hosts that have the highest number of TCP connections between themselves” Can you explain more about this? What do you mean by highest number of TCP connections between themselves? Is it in terms of bytes?



Question about this too, how do you define hosts? Does it count if it’s a receiver/sender?


I interpreted this as the highest number of flows, but yeah some clarification would be very helpful.


Each IP represents a host. Now between each pair of hosts (e.g., A and B), you should count the number of flows (TCP flows). Then, you should select the 3 pairs with highest number of connections. For example, Joe makes lots of searches on Google. Therefore, there are lots of connections between Joe’s computer and Google server.
