Abstract: "Network monitoring with available flow measurement techniques"

The research network in The Netherlands is called SURFnet.

The next generation of that network, SURFnet6, an improved monitoring service might be required, which provides usage and performance figures to its users.

In order to design such a service, research is needed on the following topics:


- Determine which standards are available for exporting flow information.

- Determine which open source flow measurement tools are available

- Investigate different scenarios where monitoring is appropriate
