Description In the era of Internet of Things (IoT), the volume of the monitored data from IoT network is enormous. However, not all data provide sufficient or relevant information. Since the analysis of big data is both resource and time exhausting, only relevant information should be analysed. In this paper, we scrutinize the widely used Top N statistics and evaluate its information value with respect to gathering information about individual hosts in the network. All theoretical discussions are evaluated on the real-world data. Moreover, we provide an assessment of statistic's suitability for identifying a host in network traffic. The results of the paper should assist data analyst of IoT network data.
