One very vital tool for networks is the network monitoring tool. These tools are part of the network because of their role in allowing administrators to observe and analyse the network at any time. This observation and analysis are fundamental to the smooth running of the network because they aid in managing network resources and ensure that the performance of the network is not hindered. This paper describes the implementation network monitoring tools that have functionality capable of performing simple monitoring tasks as well as packet capturing. The tool was designed and implemented under a Windows environment and it was designed to be user-friendly and simple while at the same time providing user with enough functionality for monitoring their networks. The effectiveness of the tools implemented was evaluated with the aid of a survey and the results analysed shows that it meets it requirement specification.
