This paper discusses various approaches to the development of an integrated and automated network performance measurement tool. Adopting an object-orientated approach to the entire system design can assist this requirement for intelligence in a distributed manner. The authors have found the JAVA language to greatly assist in this task and this language has been used for all aspects of the system from traffic generation/reception, to the database and display systems. Finally, examples of the systems have been developed and implemented at various levels, from experimental operations on ATM networks, to a prototype operational system on BT's commercial SMDS (Switched Multi-megabit Data Service) network
