Flow analysis of the internet traffic elucidates the sequence and pattern of the traffic in the network. This helps the network administrator to monitor the operations going on in the network, to understand the network usage and to examine the behavior of the user using the network. Analysis of the internet traffic can avoid a huge amount of problems. Flow analysis helps in fault tolerance, traffic engineering, resource allocation and network capacity planning. Due to the fast growing network, the volume of the traffic is getting very big day-by-day.
