Computer networks of today are based predominantly on the TCPIP protocol suite that provides best effort service. The current IP protocol excels in its simplicity and network fault tolerance. The way it implements this simplicity and fault tolerance, however, limits the protocols ability to provide a guaranteed Quality of Service QoS. A first Step in providing this QoS is to incorporate the concept of flow based routing. This thesis describes an implementation of the Server and Agent based Active network Management SAAM system architecture that incorporates flow based routing. The architecture contains servers that maintain a database that is used for assigning each flow to a path that will provide the needed QoS.
