Length of Lookahead Window

The length of the lookahead window, tex2html_wrap_inline693 , should be as large as possible while maintaining the required accuracy. The total error is also a function of the chain of messages which lead to the state in question. Thus the farther ahead of real-time the predictive network management system advances, tex2html_wrap_inline829 , the greater the number of messages before a verification query can be made and the greater the error. The maximum error is tex2html_wrap_inline831 .
