Measurement Studies of Reordering in the Internet
Measurement and Classification of Out-of-Sequence Packets in a Tier-1 IP
by Sharad Jaiswal, Gianluca Iannaccone, Christophe Diot, Jim Kurose, and
Don Towsley. IMW2002
"We present measurements and a classification of out-of-sequence packets
in TCP connections within the Sprint IP backbone... The magnitude of
reordering we report is much smaller than the results presented in
IEPM's studies on
"Roughly 25% of the hosts monitored exhibit reordering."

This paper gives the PDF of reordering distance from reordering events
from a seven-month study of video traffic in the United States.
"The average session reordering rates were very close to those in
Paxson's 1995 data."

This is not a measurement study, but "the authors attempt to measure and
quantify the effect of reordering packets in a backbone link", in terms of
