Analysis of WM Technique

In this section, we discuss the accuracy of the WM technique in capturing IP and MAC layer statistics.

For IP layer statistics, we conducted a controlled experiment, using four different measurement techniques: Application-level measurement (APP-Level), SNMP, WDM, and WM. We then analyzed the differences between WM and these other techniques. For the MAC layer statistics, we analyzed the MAC sequence numbers from the same experiment to obtain the number of missing frames in the WM results.
