I found that "Packet loss describes lost packets of data not reaching their destination after being transmitted across a network." So, we can say that it is a portion of transmitted packets gets lost.
Now, in a wireless network, if packet drops out at the sending end due to queue overflow, that will also cause packet loss. In such case, should we define the packet loss as
1 - [packets received at the receiver/packets arrived or generated at the transmitter]
Would anyone please suggest? Thank you.
