A method is used for collecting information at the session level for a multiple node distributed processing system. A first component software program monitors all packets passing through a node and extracts packet headers having a predetermined format from all nodes. A second component software program identifies a session in which each of the extracted packet headers was transmitted and, for each session, accumulates characterizing information about that session and calculates statistical data concerning all the sessions.
