In this paper we present an architecture and prototype implementation for discovering key network characteristics, such as hosts, gateways, and topology. The Fremont system uses an extensible set of modules to discover information, based on a variety of different protocols and information sources, rather than a single network management protocol. This approach allows more complete and timely information to be discovered than, for example, using only one protocol, even one as capable as the… Expand
SNMP-based enterprise IP network topology discovery
TLDR
An SNMP-based approach to discover physical as well as logical topology, such as VLAN and subnet connectivity, is proposed and a combination of graph and tree layouts is presented, to visualize connectivity information. Expand

Discovering Topologies at Router Level
TLDR
This paper proposes a tool, called HyNeTD (Hybrid Network-Topology Discovery), that effectively combines active and passive measurements to discover network topologies at router level based on a hybrid methodology. Expand
A management architecture based on network topology information
TLDR
A formalism to represent Network Topology Information that provides hierarchical views of the network elements distribution, usable with advantage by management applications is described and some application areas, where this information can be used, are pointed. Expand

  • 2009
TLDR
By rigorous analysis, it is proved that the scheme successfully infers the complete topology in the vast majority of the cases, including many instances that cannot be inferred by other methods. Expand

Mapping Communication Networks in the Directory
TLDR
The proposal for representing a communication network with all its related details and descriptions in the X.500 directory is described and applications based on this proposal are introduced and their current status is reviewed. Expand
Discovering Topologies at Router Level: Part II
TLDR
A hybrid methodology and its implementation in a software platform called Hynetd is proposed, some novel algorithms and methods adopted in the discovery chain are presented, and a performance evaluation over two network scenarios are presented. Expand
