INTERMON: an Architecture for Inter-domain Monitoring, Modelling and Simulation
4th International IFIP-TC6 Networking Conference
In this paper we present a flexible architecture providing a communication platform between heterogeneous components for inter-domain QoS and traffic analysis in large-scale, multi-domain Internet infrastructures. This task includes performing traffic measurements, analysing that traffic, and the combination of that data with routing information to match it to the network structure. It also includes simulation tools for a priori what-if analysis of network behaviour. The proposed infrastructure controls the flow of messages in the system and implements a common layer for access to database resources.
