In this paper, a scheme for estimating the proportion of the incoming traffic that is not responsive to congestion at a router is presented. The idea of the proposed scheme is that if the observed queue length and packet drop probability do not match the predictions from a model of responsive (TCP) traffic, then the error must come from nonresponsive traffic; it can then be used for estimating the proportion of nonresponsive traffic. The proposed scheme is based on the queue length history, packet drop history, and expected TCP and queue dynamics. The effectiveness of the proposed scheme over a wide range of traffic scenarios is corroborated using ns-2-based simulations. Potential applications of the proposed algorithms in traffic engineering and control are discussed.
