as mentioned on the ndnSIM website, please take a look at what wikipedia says about the Zipf-Mandelbrot distribution:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zipf–Mandelbrot_law <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zipf%E2%80%93Mandelbrot_law>

For realistic parameters, please take a look at literature that uses this kind of distribution.

Which one of them represents alpha? and is there any realistic values of "s" and "q" to represent a real or near real traffic pattern?
