Flow Classification, Internet Traffic, Traffic Identification
Accurate traffic classification is necessary for many administrative networking tasks like security monitoring, providing Quality of Service and network design or planning. In this paper we illustrate the accuracy of 18 different machine learning algorithms with different statistical parameter combinations. Additionally, we divide the statistical parameters into upstream and downstream to observe the influence of the protocol inherent differences of client and server behaviour for traffic classification. Our results show that this differentiation can increase the protocol detection rate and decrement the processing time.
