The Intermon project aims to enhance inter-domain traffic analysis in large scale Internet infrastructures. An important part of the system is a set of simulators especially designed for inter-domain scenarios based on measurements from the real network. Simulation results are analyzed using the built-in visual data mining system. This paper presents the architecture enabling the interaction user, measurement tools, simulators and visualization components in a widely distributed environment. It also focuses on the issues that arise when building a system that is distributed over most of Europe.
