net monitoring management
Net Monitoring/Management
  • topology (mapping)
  • workload characterization (passive)
  • performance evaluation (active)
  • routing (dynamics)
  • visualization (massive datasets)
  • network management (correlation & integration)
infrastructure dns roots
infrastructure: DNS roots
  • RSSAC, DNS technical advisory committee to ICANN
  • co-locate skitter hosts w/ root servers
  • demonstrate root server performance in serving target community
  • develop techniques for evaluating architectural optimality for root server placement
workload characterization passive monitoring
workload characterization (passive monitoring)
  • uses: research, equipment design, operational (engineering/security/policing), & accounting
  • router-based implementations, e.g., cflowd, netflow
  • stand-alone monitors, e.g., CoralReef (OC3, 12, 48)
    • persistent real-time full frame collection
    • security: dynamic pkt filtering trigger by attack precursors
    • Dag 4.1 (OC48 POS) testing planned 6/00
  • NLANR MOAT - 15 monitors collecting traces (http://moat.nlanr.net/pma)
analysis for peering capacity planning

performance evaluation active
performance evaluation (active)
  • network engineers to diagnose problems
  • ISPs & users to verify SLAs & application performance
  • Internet weather
  • variations of traditional tools (ping & traceroute) used in most initiatives, e.g. NLANR/MOAT, SLAC, IPWT, Surveyor, commercial services (also treno, mping, & techniques measurement app perf.)
  • passive methods emerging
perf evaluation priorities
perf evaluation priorities
  • definitions & metrics
    • working groups, IPPM & CAIDA
  • bandwidth assessment techniques
  • passive techniques
  • correlation
    • across sources
    • w/ workload, routing data
  • large scale deployment
  • user interface to measurements
routing
routing
  • 15 year-old technology
  • minimal measurement/windows makes it difficult to correlate with other data
    • access to tables infrequent
    • some route tables available, e.g., Oregon’s RouteViews
  • active measurement techniques used to gauge route stability
visualization big viz
visualization ('big viz')
  • massive datasets (terabytes)
  • many data attributes (complex)
  • multiple viz strategies needed
  • integration into network utilities --

drill-down critical

network mgmt systems
network mgmt systems
  • monitoring
    • real-time data - snmp data, measurement & configs
    • trend monitoring - important for planning & diagnostic purposes
    • integration of both with ticket tracking system & other databases
  • databases
    • measurement data (binary file format, e.g. arts++)
    • RDBMS for net config, contacts, etc.
  • viz:
    • intuitive, linked to utilities & drill-down
  • correlation of multiple datasets
  • simulations needed for planning, tweaking IGP metrics, etc.
