We have recently developed a passive-analysis tool for estimating TCP 
losses reliably. We've used this tool to study the traces of millions of 
recent TCP connections. Some of our observations have been published in 
the July issue of CCR. You can access the paper at:


This paper can provide loss-rates only within "aggregates" of 
connections. We have much more data than is presented here. Please let 
us know if you have a specific need.
