Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0147182A2] A method, system, and apparatus enables a network operator or vendor to dynamically trace (e.g., track) the resources utilized by a connection during all or any portion of the connection. When a call connection is initiated, each node involved in a connection detects the resources therein involved in the connection path. Furthermore, while the connection still exists, the nodes may continue to detect resource changes (e.g., additions, deletions, exchanges) in order to record them during, for example, the entire lifetime of the connection. During or after the connection, the detected utilized resources may be sent to a control and/or management center for display and analysis. The connection resource tracking results may be displayed in a number of ways, such as a chronological, icon-based graphical display; a tree-like, nodal-based graphical display that may be expanded or collapsed in order to focus the display on the connection portion of interest; etc.
