Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9847308A1] A network testing and monitoring system in which test packets are sent between testing stations connected to a network, to determine the performance characteristics of the network. The results of the test are analysed and may be used to automatically control the further generation of test packets across the network to locate and isolate network failures and to obtain further information about the network characteristics. An incident reporting system operates on the test results on a continuing basis to determine whether any effects which are significant in terms of network operation are occurring. If such events do occur, they are reported to the network operator as network incidents.
