[e2e] Address Space Distribution

Many thanks to those who pointed out the recent paper on address structure
of IP traffic. I don't think they discuss about address space distribution
on network topology but only on address space distribution observed on
aggregated IP traffic.
Anyway it is useful for the part where I need realistic generation of
traffic demand per aggregated destination address.
I have a couple of questions after reading the paper.
1. In figure 4, does the 'flow' means collection of
packets with similar IP 5 tuples (i.e, IP source,
IP destination, protocol, dest. port, and source
2. In their slides, the generated address structure
using multifractal does not resemble the real
address structure. However they claimed that
they manage to capture the essential properties
of the address structure. It seems to me that the
density of the address aggregate is quite
selective. The concentration is higher from
22.214.171.124 to 255.255.255.255 and especially
in the region between 126.96.36.199 ~ 188.8.131.52.
p/s: Has anyone got a program to generate heavy-tailed flow?
