Measurement is the first step in predicting the growth of Internet. They can reveal information about traffic and topology characteristics of the Internet. Understanding traffic and topology characteristics are vital for evaluating the performance of networking protocols, creating accurate models for simulation and helping service providers to better utilize their resources. Using the data collected from a National Internet Service Provider in Kosovo, PTK, we report on traffic measurements and analyze some of the most important characteristics of Internet traffic such as self-similarity and long-range dependence. Also, we reveal information about the topology structure of Internet at IP level, from the perspective of our data.
