The autonomous behavior of tiny, low powered programmable sensing devices often requires constant monitoring for accurate and reliable functioning and data delivery. The problem of monitoring these sensing devices is generally hard due to the dense deployment. It is common to divide such a large problem (or system) into sub-problems (or subsystems) and solve. In sensor networks, we divide the large deployment of sensors into clusters and monitor these groups of sensors or clusters. In this paper, we propose a novel methodology to analyze the critical parameters (bandwidth usage, network congestion, number of dead nodes, activity in the region, and overall energy (power) consumption) of a given network of sensing devices in order to increase the lifetime and reliability of the network.
