The purpose of this paper is to present an implementation of a method that combines active and passive methods to measure and estimate the main performance parameters in IP networks. More specifically the method integrates performance and flow measurements. The main features of the method and an implementation using the flow meter NeTraMet are described. Test results for packet delays and delay variations, losses and throughput are presented. Applications to monitoring of traffic from server-based networks and an adaptive monitoring system are also considered.

Keywords: measurement methodology, software/tools
