PB/INFO/028 (10/05) On most network access links the traffic flowing in and out shows a similar pattern. Most communications consist of a request going in one direction and a response coming back in the other. The size of the request and response may be different but the pattern of traffic in time should be roughly similar. However, sometimes the inbound and outbound patterns are completely different. This often indicates that there is a security problem somewhere on the network that needs urgent attention.
