Scalable traffic classifier and classifier training system Patent uri icon


  • A traffic classifier has a plurality of binary classifiers, each associated with one of a plurality of calibrators. Each calibrator trained to translate an output score of the associated binary classifier into an estimated class probability value using a fitted logistic curve, each estimated class probability value indicating a probability that the packet flow on which the output score is based belongs to the traffic class associated with the binary classifier associated with the calibrator. The classifier training system configured to generate a training data based on network information gained using flow and packet sampling methods. In some embodiments, the classifier training system configured to generate reduced training data sets, one for each traffic class, reducing the training data related to traffic not associated with the traffic class.
