Abstract: The introduction of internet protocol (IP) services in multimedia applications on the internet had affected the Quality of service (QoS) efficiency in one way or the other which has resulted in the requirement of more bandwidth. However, exceptional service enjoyed on the internet had come with its challenges, purely the congestion of the internet as a result of growth in number of users. Congestion Management in the network services becomes one of the main problem in achieving high performance and good quality of internet services which also has resulted to managing bandwidth. This research therefore, used the ping plotter software to monitor the network in order to observe the delay on the network. After studying the network for a period of time without increasing bandwidth, the network administrator can make the right decision on how to achieve high performance based on the throughput.
Keywords: Bandwidth, Congestion, Internet, Internet Protocol (IP), Throughput.
