1. A method for time correlated playback of traffic patterns between nodes in a network, the method comprising:
receiving node statistics of data transfers between nodes in a network having a plurality of nodes in a centralized control point, wherein the node statistics include a time stamp (tn) according to time at the centralized control point of when a request statistics message was sent to each node of the plurality of nodes, a node timestamp (ta) according to time at each node of when the message was received in the node, and a first delta between tn and ta that is used to determine a second delta which adjusts the node statistics;
storing the node statistics adjusted according to the second delta in a statistics database at the centralized control point; and
using a time stepping mechanism to repeatedly access the node statistics for a set of nodes selected from the plurality of nodes in the statistics database at a predetermined rate for playback presentation through a user interface on the centralized control point beginning from a specified start time to a specified end time.
