Traffic management on Local Area Networks is becoming an important issue as workstation and personal computer networking speeds start to outstrip the capacity of current and emerging network technologies. As such networks now approach saturation, it is important to tune the network to traffic patterns in order to avoid congestive collapse. While there are many books available on network management, none address the practical problems of traffic management facing the site administrator. This book fills that void by discussing the specific tasks facing local area network administrators as they try to manage the flow of traffic on their network and adapt the network to cope with changing demands. It will help them find answers to questions such as: Why does my network operate so slowly? Do I need a faster network? Is my network congested? What can I do to reduce congestion?
