Our project “Active Network Monitor/Net Tracer” is mainly concerned with monitoring the routers on the network monitoring tool is run. The aim of our project is to help the Network Administrator to find the bottlenecks in the existing networks. The monitoring of the network implies gathering basic features and characteristics of network such as number of interfaces which are connected to the network, incoming and outgoing bytes of data, bandwidth, CPU utilization, memory utilization, system uptime etc. It helps us to measure the error rate in the communication if present and inform the Administrator.
