HomeMaestro: A distributed system for the monitoring and instrumentation of home networks

HomeMaestro strives to put order in the chaos of home networks through an end-host distributed solution that requires no additional assistance from network equipment such as routers or access points or modification of network applications.
HomeMaestro performs extensive measurements at the host level to infer application network requirements, and identifies network related problems through time-series analysis. HomeMaestro automatically detects and resolves contention over network resources.
