This paper summarizes a study conducted over traffic generated and received at a network terminal machine.The results it includes may be used to simulate the processes of the interarrival times, of the packet sizes and of the bit count per time unit, at the source level and for several types of telematic applications (namely Voice over IP and File Sharing). Analysis shows that the Weibull and Normal distributions may be fitted to the greater part of the empirical data and that most of the traces exhibit positive correlation.
