On the WEKA software [7] we ran the algorithm Neural Networks by changing each time the number of neurons in the hidden layer in Weka changing the Hidden layer attribute that describes the number and size of hidden layers
In the last step, this fused dataset has been deployed to different machine vision classifiers, that is, artificial neural network (MLP), Naive Bayes (NB), Random Forest (RF), and J48; here J48 is the implementation of C4.5 algorithm of decision tree in Weka software.
The detailed contrast tests are done in WEKA, in terms of A_TP, B_TP, B_FP, and B_TN, explained as follows: the ratio of benign traffic and botnet traffic recognized correctly, the ratio of botnet traffic detected as botnet conversation, the ratio of begin traffic classified as botnet traffic, and the ratio of botnet traffic identified as normal traffic.

Upon processing the data, the Weka tool generates a confusion matrix to verify the distribution of errors made by the classifier, where the VP (true positives) are instances correctly recognized by the system; said value corresponds to the proportion examples classified as class x, from among all the examples that truly have class x, that is, what amount of the class has been captured.
Thus, we ranked and reduced the set of attributes for each of our dataset by using the "AttributeSelection" filter in Weka. Specifically, we used the InfoGain AttributeEval evaluator with the ranker search algorithm to select from the top-10 ranked attributes to the top-1000 ranked attributes for each domain.
Foram utilizados como ferramentas para levantamento, manuseio e execucao da pesquisa a linguagem Structured Query Language (SQL), a planilha eletronica MS--Excel e o software de dominio publico de KDD denominado Waikato Environmentfor Knowledge Analysis (Weka) (Witten, Frank, & Hall, 2011).
Data were analyzed by using machine learning methods included in WEKA, and the MAE and RMSE values were compared.
The results obtained by POA and WEKA are shown in Table VII and Table VIII.
