Title: APPARATUS AND SYSTEM FOR OPTIMIZING COMMUNICATION NETWORKS
Abstract:
A network monitoring apparatus and system are disclosed to detect quality of service indicator values in headers of packets received via a network port. Based on detecting the quality of service indicators values, the apparatus and system maintain, for each of a plurality of quality of service indicator values, a count of the number of packets having the respective quality of service indicator value. The apparatus and system further maintain, for each of the plurality of quality of service indicator values, a total volume of network traffic having the respective quality of service indicator value. The packet counts and total network traffic volumes are output to a host processor. The host processor, in response to receiving the packet counts and network traffic volumes, transmits the packet counts and network traffic volumes to a network controller.
