Abstract Data transmission accuracy is one of critical performances for assessing internet by service providers and enterprise customers. The stochastic computer network (SCN), in which each edge has several capacities and the accuracy rate, has multiple terminals. This paper is mainly to evaluate the system reliability for a SCN, where the system reliability is the probability that demand can be fulfilled under the total accuracy rate. A minimal capacity vector allows the system to transmit demand to each terminal under the total accuracy rate. This study proposes an efficient algorithm to find all minimal capacity vectors by minimal paths. The system reliability can then be computed in terms of all minimal capacity vectors.
