Nprobe: Network protocol analysis
GRIDprobe: Scalable network monitoring
Nprobe is a scalable network monitoring architecture that is able to
passively monitor high-speed network links and collect detailed
information about the traffic flowing through them. Unlike other
network probes that simply records packet headers, Nprobe collects and
integrates information across all levels of the protocol stack,
enabling accurate understanding of network performance, protocol
interaction, and even user behaviour.
The information can be used to highlight problems with
current-protocols, and to answer "what if" questions about the impact
of new network technologies and protocols. Nprobe collects data to
logfiles, which are then post-processed to complete the analysis.
