Normalizing histograms and Finding best fit distribution

I have plotted packets arriving in one second at a router. I then made histograms of the number of occurences of same number of packets in one second time window. My question is that I want to normalize these histograms. How can I do this to get probability mass functions. And then how do I check which distributions give the best fit for these histograms.

To normalize, you should express the number of packets as percent of the total, so in the end they add up to 100%.

I'd start with the lognormal distribution.
