Abstract : The objective of our effort was to develop methods for diagnosing network performance problems in real time for DARPA. According to our Phase I research, it is possible to collect data on the network and morph it into queuing models to produce information about the network and physical layers of nodes on a network. The program consisted of three tasks. In the first task Synectics assembled a set of metrics that formed an accurate network traffic model, identified mechanisms for hooking well-researched mathematical performance models into software artifacts to allow the definition of expected behavior, and identified deviations from such behavior. Secondly, Synectics described the logical architecture of the proposed performance monitoring system as an object model. Finally, Synectics developed the prototype using Java, with support from JMAPI(Java Management Application Programmer's Interface) and JDBC(Java Database Connectivity), and the object model designed in the second task.
