The paper introduces a monitoring tool that was designed for an existing network of Wi-Fi hotspots. This was done by adding data collection and visualization components to the existing network. Syslog protocol was used for data collection and left running for two months monitoring network’s performance. Google Maps was used for Visualizing overall network’s performance. The tool was tested with experts and it was compared to existing monitoring tools and It was found that the monitoring tool was more scalable and effective than traditional monitoring tools.
