In the paper some issues of intelligent use for computer network monitoring, which are very important additions to the network monitoring system are reflected. Namely problems of the use of mobile agents in monitoring and management systems, as well as application of machine learning methods for network traffic classification are considered. (p. 82-90)

Keywords: network monitoring, monitoring/management systems, mobile agents, network traffic, network traffic classification, machine learning methods.
