NetMate comes from Network Measurement and Accounting System and is a flexible and extensible network measurement tool (meter).
It can be used for accounting, delay/loss measurement, packet capturing and much more. The main advantage over other existing tools is that it can be easily extended due to its modular (class-based) structure and dynamic loadable packet processing and information export modules.
A GUI for controlling multiple meters and displaying measurement results is currently under development.
NMRSH is the NetMate Remote Shell which allows to remote control NetMate meters.
Here are some key features of "NetMate":
Flexibility and Extensibility
Runtime loadable metric and export modules
Modular architecture (C++ classes)
Extensible Ruleset Format (XML-based)
OS tested: Linux (SuSE, Debian, Redhat), FreeBSD, Solaris
Open Source (GPL)
IPv4 and IPv6 Support
Multiple Classification Algorithms
Automatic flow generation based on arbitrary packet attribute combinations
Packet Sampling Support
Secure Control Interface
Host-based Authentication (DNS, IP address)
User-based Authentication (HTTP)
Packet capturing using libpcap
Support simultaneous measurement on multiple interfaces
Currently only Ethernet, IPv4/IPv6, ICMP, TCP, UDP, data layer support
Extensible to everything libpcap can capture
Counter, bandwidth, jitter, port usage, packet length, RTP packet loss, packet ID generation (crc32 and md5), capture (tcpdump file), RTT (ICMP echo), text output (similar to tcpdump output), DNS latency, HTTP performance, TCP connection setup latency
Text file, binary file, SQL (under development), IPFIX (under development)
Remote Control via Shell Tool or Standard Web Browser
Interactive or batch processing of meter commands
