The SiZer technique is used to study the homogeneity of a point process of Internet traffic flow start times. It is seen that a homogenous Poisson process is an inappropriate model, because it does not yield observed statistically significant burstiness. Some Weibull waiting processes gives better, but still inadequate performance. A clustered Poisson process gives the best fit.
