The increase in the volume, speed and heterogeneity of the network traffic composition has led to the complication of the management tasks of modern computer networks (CN). To solve this problem, a new CN management paradigm is needed, which should be based on continuous, effective monitoring. However, with continuous monitoring of the CN, we have to deal with very large amounts of network traffic data. This, in turn, leads to a decrease in the efficiency of monitoring the CN, which makes it necessary to include a person in the process of analyzing network data. For this, in this article proposes a model visualization of the CN monitoring based on the methods of visual analytics (pp.85-91).
