Hi Riham, 
Hope you are fine

There are a lot of open source softwares that can measure,monitor your network like what Samir and Mujahid suggested:
- Cacti : it is a web-based network monitoring and graphing tool to measure your traffic, Latency, 
- SmokePing: keeps track of your network latency
- Munin
- Nagios
- LibreNMS
- Observium
- Icinga: honestly i did not try it before, but i *think* it is similar to Nagios

you also may find more info in NMS workshop that hold during SdNOG3 at:

and the workshop materials at:

All the best
