The ongoing expansion in the Internet is the cause of continuous utilization and traffic behaviour changes. Due to diversity and fast changing properties, the Internet is a moving target. The tremendous increase in usage of the internet has necessitated the development of a tool that can model the suitability and quality of a network in terms of software metric. The effective management of any network requires quantification, measuring and modeling that can depict the nature of a network. This
