We have seen that the drain of a lightning network channel can be used to predict the failure rate of payments in this channel which correlates inversely with its reliability.

Assume my node M has a channel with another node N the drain can mathematically be defined by the fraction of traffic demand that goes from my node to the other node in comparison of all traffic.

                         # of routing requests from M-->N drain = ------------------------------------------------------------------         #of routing requests from M-->N + # of routing requests from N-->M  

However in practice this seems very hard to measure as I will not see potential # of routing requests from N-->M in the case that N does not have enough liquidity on the channel to fulfill the routing request to M.

Are there any other workarounds how I could estimate / measure the drain value on a channel without having the necessity to talk to my peer?
