Visualizing Network Application Traffic to Diagnose Poor Application Performance at End-Hosts: A report submitted in partial fulfillment for the degree of Master of Computer Science in the Faculty: Master 2 Reseaux University Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC)

Abstract : With the introduction of new and innovative applications and networked services comes additional complexity that not only confounds end-users but also experts such as network and system administrators. HostView an end-host network, application and system data collection utility was created with the aim of being able to correlate connected application performance with the user’s perception of performance and ultimately predict their satisfaction / dissatisfaction. In order to improve HostView, field trials with home users need to be conducted; to provide home users with appropriate incentive an interactive and user-friendly User-Interface (UI) for HostView needs to be created. This report describes the design, creation and implementation of HostView User-interface with user data visualization and the mechanisms responsible for it. The first version of the HostView UI is meant to be the keystone in enriching HostView sufficiently for it to provide value in the form of providing Internet application usage habits to potentially indicate causes for observed performance degradations. Having access to a relational database that collects HostView data, using the standard web development toolkit, i.e HTML, CSS, JavaScript and a plotting library such as D3.js, I set out to understand the HostView dataset and to create a means of showing the data as graphic visualizations that are relevant to the interests of the home Internet user. We hope this UI will enable us to conduct a second field trial with home users in order to refine HostView towards being a standard utility in the home user’s toolkit.
