In this paper, we consider the model of server traffic when the traffic is separated into several streams. The amount of transferred data differs for different streams. Based on real traffic measurements we proposed the server traffic model where traffic of every stream is described by the same independent processes, but each process has its own time scale. We show that for traffic analysis as well as for developing of the most effective methods of control of this traffic, it is necessary to correctly identify the time scale for each stream, as well as the time scale of traffic fluctuations those have a significant effect to QoS.
