Quality of service evaluation of wired and wireless networks for multimedia communication requires transmission parameters of packets making up the traffic through the medium to be analysed. Sampling methods play an important role in this process. Sampling provides a representative subset of the traffic thus reducing the time and resources needed for packet analysis. In an adaptive sampling, unlike fixed rate sampling, the sample rate changes over time in accordance with transmission rate or other traffic characteristics and thus could be more optimal than fixed parameter sampling. In this study an adaptive sampling technique that combined regression modelling and a fuzzy inference system was developed. The method adaptively determined the optimum number of packets to be selected by considering the changes in the traffic transmission characteristics. The method's operation was assessed using a computer network simulated in the NS-2 package. The adaptive sampling evaluated against a number of non-adaptive sampling methods gave an improved performance.
