Innovation is the application of new solutions that meet new requirements, inarticulate needs, or existing market needs. In the field of performance analysis of networks, new innovations are springing up which are focusing on converged networks (data, voice and video). Among the recent ones are both open source and commercial tools developed to improve and simplify performance analysis techniques vis-a-vis analytical modeling, simulation and measurements. In this paper, an attempt is made to consider the concept of performance analysis in general while focusing on computer networks.
