On a Packet-Wise Data Transfer Monitoring System

Brendan Ndifon, F. U. Ogban


This work tends to propose a billing system that is measured by the quality of bits/bytes transfer. In order to determine the amount of network resources to be reserved, traffic and performance descriptors must be defined. Allocated resources are used only when customers send or receive traffic, whereas when customers are inactive, resources may remain unused. Network administrators clearly prefer to charge users in proportion to the reserved resources, that is to say in proportion to the potential use of the service. In packet-wise billing system, subscribers are bill based on the actual amount of data transferred as in terms of byte. This research was carried out at unical e-library because of their facility, the researcher designed a server which serves as the billing system, in the server which is ubuntu driven, the researcher install the radius server, PHP Admin and mysql. The reason being that the radius server will do the authentication, accounting and access control, then the researcher use the packet sniffer to retrieve packet from the network using mikrotik router to connect the server and the client computer. It was discovered that when a user tries to connect to the server, it will be requested to enter a username and password that will give him/her access to the server. With this a capture will display showing that the user was successfully logged in with it bandwidth detail on it instead of time. So with this, a user can freely enjoy the service of the internet

Keywords: reserved packets,, bandwidth, packet-wise billing system, processor clock timer,   weighted fair queuing, Flat rate model.
