Our Work

  • Goal: gaining a deeper understanding of the causes & characteristics of link failures

  • How:

    • Using SONET alarm logs

    • Focusing on high failure links/periods

High Failure Periods

  • Periods with a large number of failures (HNP)

  • Periods in which a large percentage of links are down (HDP)

Periods with High Number of Failures

High Failure Periods (Cont’d)

  • We can also classify high failure periods based on spatial distribution of the links failing in those periods.

Matching IS-IS Failures with SONET alarms (SLOS)

Link Failures in IP Networks: A Closer Look


Preliminary Results

  • About 58% of all failures match with a SLOS alarm.

  • High Failure Links have a higher correlation with SLOS alarms (85%)

  • Router Related Failures show much less correlation than other classes (0-29%).

  • Periods with high number of failures show more correlation than periods with high duration of failures.

Unmatched SLOS alarms

Matching SLOS alarms

  • Problem: A large percentage (45%) of SLOS alarms do not correspond to any IS-IS failures

  • Solution: Remove links which are not up or links which go down for ever

  • Result: Less than 2% of SLOS alarms do not correspond to any IS-IS failures

Matching IS-IS Failures & SONET alarms

Unmatched SLOS alarms(considering removed links)

Link Failures in IP Networks: A Closer Look


Unmatched SLOS alarms

  • Spread over time

  • Almost half of them have a matching alarm (SLOS <-> SLOS cleared)

  • Minimum time between SLOS and SLOS cleared is 9 seconds.

  • More investigation???

Research Direction

  • High Failure Periods: Study cascading effects, spatial distribution of failures

  • High Failure Links: Predicting future failures based on passed ones.

  • Network Availability: How do failures affect network availability?

  • ???

You always pass failures on the way to success!

Thank you!
