This paper presents a composite performance index for communication networks with variable link-capacities. This index is based on link reliabilities and multiple-capacity link-states. Source-to-terminal success is the ability to provide connectivity with a certain traffic-carrying capacity. This index is useful for determining the performance of networks with links operating with residual traffic-carrying capacity and gives a good idea of the available resources for a particular s-t connection. An algorithm is given to evaluate the composite performance index
