2 IEOR 4404, Practice Midterm Exam 1. We are interested in using simulation to study the performance of an internet server under different communication protocols. The server receives processing requests in the form of “packets”; a packet is a formatted unit of data. There are different ways in which one can model internet traffic, this question discusses what is known as an on-off sources model. An On-Off Sources Model: Traffic is assumed to come in from many independent sources, and each source can be either on or off. When a source is “On”, it sends packets to the server according to a Poisson process with rate λ . When it is “Off” it does not send any packets. There can be several sources on at the same time. “On” sessions arrive at exponential interarrival times with rate μ ; more specifically, if at time t a source just turned “On”, the next source will turn “On” at time t + X
