Abstract:

This thesis designed and implemented a hybrid network monitoring facility on an existing Distributed Data Base Management System. Analysis of the performance evaluations goals and objectives for the complete distributed system both the layered protocol network and distributed data base was accomplished. Two monitoring programs were developed. The on-line analysis monitor is designed to work with existing software to calculate metrics involving arrival rates, packet counts and arrival times. The off-line analysis monitor, using the packets saved during the on-line session, completes a more detailed analysis, providing user selectable metrics in the area of throughput, response times and utilization. Both programs were extensively tested using a four phased process which encompassed unit level, integration, systems and operational testing. Operational testing was accomplished using an artifical traffic generator program, designed to produce realistic network traffic.
