Abstract
Efficient performance and high throughput are the major goals of the network performance management. How can we achieve these goal? First, it is necessary to know the network traffic situations. This thesis research implements a network traffic query utility for users to monitor the network traffic situations. There are several network traffic situation reports available for users to understand the traffic situation over the network. The network users also can query the network/system status of their respective computer hosts. This information would help users to diagnose the network problems. Realizing the network traffic situation, manager and users can schedule the network applications, reconfigure the network configuration, or reallocate the network resources to improve the network performance and throughput. The Naval Postgraduate School campus network will be used as an example to demonstrate and illustrate the usage of this network traffic query utility.
