Architecture of a Network Monitor

  title={Architecture of a Network Monitor},
  author={Andrew W. Moore and James Hall and Christian Kreibich and E. W. Harris and Ian Pratt},
This paper describes a system for simultaneously monitoring multiple protocols. It performs full linerate capture and implements on-line analysis and compression to record interesting data without loss of information. We accept that the balance must be maintained in such a system between disk-bandwidth, CPU-capacity and datareduction in order to perform monitoring at full line-rate. We present the architecture in detail and measure the performance of our sample implementation, Nprobe.
