MN504 - Networked Applications
T1-2016

Assignment Two: Individual Assignment Two
Submission Due: Week 11 and Presentation in Week 12

Marks :
 15 marks for Report (15%)
 5 marks for Presentation (5%)
 5 marks for PBL (5%)
 Length 6 pages

Purpose of the assessment:

The purpose of this assignment is to develop skills in critical thinking, reasoning, problem
solving in regards to Networked Applications Management (NAM). This assignment will
provide scope to explore and learn working mechanisms of cutting-edge tools and
technologies with regard to NAM. Student will develop skills of critically understanding
problems, conceptualising possible solutions to the problems, and exploring possible NAM
related tools to justify the strength of their claimed solutions.

The assignment will also require analysing capability to relate networked application
protocols with the underlying networked infrastructure with a view to managing networked
applications. This assignment provides students with opportunity to demonstrate problem
solving capability in the domain of cutting edge distributed systems.

Submission guidelines:

1. A submitted work must include the following:
 A cover page, identifying student (name and number), teaching staff, and
assignment.
 The assignment must use 12 point font size minimum and at least single line
spacing with appropriate section headings.
 Reference sources must be cited in the text of the report, and listed appropriately
at the end in a reference list (IEEE).
 It should follow standard academic reporting guidelines.
 The page numbers of the assignment must include in each page.
 Resulting works need to be presented to a wide group of invited guests (students
and teachers)

2. The assignment must be submitted in soft (electronic) copy under Moodle which will
be check by turnitin. Assignment will be marked on Moodle. Students must submit on
Moodle within the deadline.

3. A student will be given a topic to explore its designated areas as presented in the
following table; students are advised to explore the topic area(s) by reviewing the
literature; students participating in the PBL are taught how to do the critical thinking
for review literature; and literature is available in the internet as papers, book
chapters, and independent scholarly reports by experts, and research based videos.
Areas are organised in line with the lecture, for example, Topic 1 from Wk2/Sld4, 17,
18 means that the idea of the topic and its associated areas are from the Lecture 2 or
Week2, and the slides of the week are 4, 17, and 18. If a group of two students can
collaborate on the areas of a topic, there must have clear descriptions of individual
contribution and collaborative contribution.

Extensions :

Requests for an extension, accompanied by supporting documentation, must be received by
the student in writing before 3 working days from the due date else penalties may apply for
late submission without an approved extension. Special consideration form is available on
level 6 reception.

Penalties :

Academic misconduct such as cheating and plagiarism may incur penalties ranging from a
reduced result to program exclusion.

Marking guidelines and Recommendations

Assignment Overview and General instruction of Assignment:

You lecturer will allocate a protocol to you from Table 1 on random selection basis.
Download the wireshark trace file from given Hyperlink for the allocated protocol and
use Wireshark to analyse the trace for QoS and overall performance. Prepare a report
which should address the following:

 How the protocol works, including its strengths and weaknesses.
 Analysis of the traffic in the trace, using the appropriate features in Wireshark to
identify level of QoS and overall performance of the protocol in given traces.
 The student need to also pair with one of their friend who is working on a protocol
from same group and compare between each other’s trace to identify best and
worst performance in terms of QoS and overall performance.

Marking criteria:

Marks are allocated as follows:
