i am not asking the tool name,i am asking in which programming platform those tools & applications are developed
A software based Network Monitoring tool would have to use a combination of Simple network Monitoring Protocol (SNMP), Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) and Port scanning. I would suggest languages such as Perl and Python which have some interesting libraries (, libsnmp-info-perl, libsnmp-perl, and so on).

That said, have a look at other open source network monitoring projects:

You can also get good insights into the programming platforms and languages there.

There are evidently some C# alternatives too: #SNMP ( and SNMP#NET (

Well i think what you are interested is building your own. You could use most any language, c# Java vb probably php.  What you need is the data. This is normally from a firewall or router and in a Netflow stream or some other format. As long as you get the stream you are just parsing the data.
