In this paper, the authors outlines a comprehensive model to increase system efficiency, preserve network bandwidth, monitor incoming and outgoing packets, ensure the security of confidential files and reduce power wastage in an organization. This model illustrates the use and potential application of a Network Analysis Tool (NAT) in a multi-computer set-up of any scale. The model is designed to run in the background and not hamper any currently executing applications, while using minimum system resources. It was developed as open source software, using VB.Net, with a view to overcoming limitations of legacy systems and financial restrictions in small-to mid-level organizations like businesses and educational institutes.
