In order to satisfy all the requirements of systems based on distributed resources, computer networks to connect them have to be monitored. These tools have to provide network performance indicators for setting optimal data transfers between project nodes. In this chapter we describe a monitoring framework able to perform measurements, which is applied for supporting the GRID-based infrastructure of the e-VLBI network.
