Driving by the Rear-View Mirror: Managing a Network with Cricket

Jeff R. Allen, WebTV Networks, Inc.


Cricket is a tool that lets users visualize a set of measurements over time. It was designed to assist network administrators by letting them see and respond to patterns in their network. In this paper, I will describe the need we saw and attempted to resolve by writing Cricket, then describe the solution we came up with. Finally, I will describe some future work we expect to do to make Cricket a more proactive monitoring tool.
