The Internet exhibits certain specific types of behavior (e.g.,
bursty packet loss) that can affect the performance seen by the users
as well as the operators. The loss pattern or loss distribution is a
key parameter that determines the performance observed by the users
for certain real-time applications such as packet voice and video.
For the same loss rate, two different loss distributions could
potentially produce widely different perceptions of performance.
Using the base loss metric defined in RFC 2680, this document defines
two derived metrics 'loss distance' and 'loss period', and the
associated statistics that together capture loss patterns experienced
by packet streams on the Internet.
