First sentence makes no sense[edit]

The first sentence reads "In computer networking, an elephant flow is an extremely large (in total bytes) continuous flow set up by a TCP (or other protocol) flow measured over a network link." Taking out the parenthesized bit makes it easier to see: "In computer networking, an elephant flow is an extremely large continuous flow set up by a TCP flow measured over a network link." 109.148.210.43 (talk) 12:57, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

Isn't elephant derived from RFC 1072?[edit]

See LFN or elephan(t) as defined in RFC 1072. The internet is effectively an LFN but the problems of LFNs only arise when a flow attempts to use the bandwidth. Hence a flow on the internet to which RFC 1072 might be relevant is clearly an elephant. However, I can't verify that; maybe someone else can. At the very least a reference to the other usage of elephan(t) would be useful. Tsgsh (talk) 16:40, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
