The aim of this work was to conduct experiments to discover the characteristics of the network traffic generated by running Grid applications. In the experiments, the Grid application used was to discover resources and services registered in non-central resource. The Vega Grid was introduced as the experimental Grid platform and Resource Discovery was run in this platform. Since the application of Resource Discovery could generate continuous network traffic, it was useful to measure and analyse this network traffic and find out its characteristics. Several experiments were conducted for the same purpose using three, four, five, and six PCs in different experiments. Moreover, the same experiment using a WAN was conducted with seven PCs (four PCs inside the campus and three PCs outside). Specifically, ETHEREAL was introduced to collect data packets involved with the experiments.
