Extension of a previous paper. Brief read. Following are the summary from the paper’s introduction:

• In a data center, most flow are in small size (in terms of bytes transferred) and short (within a second)
• Number of flows active per second is well under 10K per rack
• Traffic is ON/OFF in nature with properties fits some (lognormal/weibull) heavy-tail distribution
• In cloud, majority (80%) of traffic stays in a rack; in university/private enterprises, majority (40-90%) traverses network
• Link utilization is significant only in cores, but set of heavily utilized links are time-varying
• At any time, heavily utilized core links is less than 25% of the total core links
• Primary cause of packet loss is due to momentary spikes
