This is a Resource Monitor framework investigation and design. Resource Monitor is designed to provide network administrators and researchers with a consistent interface for a wide range of network analysis applications, especially for our ongoing project Quanta, Optiputer, Emerge2.

The key Resource Monitor design goal is scalability to potentially use any measurement tools within a single infrastructure for both electronic traditional network and optical network. This software system is potentially allowing for thousands of monitoring probing, that is, the global network. The architecture is designed with active and passive measurement as a central concern. The forecasting and Internet Analysis play a key role for providing important information for dynamic scheduling and signaling of the network.

The types of measurement tools used in this system include, but not limited to, Topology tools, Workload tools, Performance tools, Routing tools. The types of measurement parameters in this system include, but not limited to, bandwidth, throughput, latency, loss, queue characters, connectivity, workload characterization, traffic flow analysis, protocol utilization, routing topology. The types of Internet Analysis in this system include, but not limited to, traffic and protocol analysis, application/process network connection report, path trace report, network problem analysis(such as bottlenecking), network weather map.
