Packet-pair has been used as one of the primary means to measure network capacity. Yet, most prior proposal tools are sensitive to network status and perform poorly in heavy-loaded network. We present a novel filtering mechanism to address the negative effects of cross traffic. After split the origin set of probe pairs into two packet sets composed of the first and second packet of all pairs respectively, we select the packets with minimum one-way delay in each set and use them to reconstruct a new pair free from interference of cross traffic, from which the final capacity estimates are derived. We show the mechanism in detail and validate it in simulations as well as Internet experiments. Preliminary results show that the proposed mechanism is feasible and robust for the heavy-loaded network, which can produce accurate estimates with relatively fewer overheads compared to similar tools. Finally, we analyze the difference in the first and second packet of probe pair in depth, which argues a novel direction of the analysis of packet-pair.
