- Title: Network Performance Monitoring with Flexible Models of Multi-Point Passive Measurements
- Abstract: Many management actions for networking infrastructures require to simultaneously consider the state of several network elements. This is particularly critical in the case of reconfigurable deployments, such as Virtual or Software-Defined Networks, to scale the affected equipment up and prevent performance bottlenecks. In this light, we present dPRISMA (distributed Passive Retrieval of Information, and Statistical Multipoint Analysis), a passive monitoring system intended to fit statistical models for network measurements and raise alarms in the case of extreme behaviors. As distinguishing features, dPRISMA relies on cost-effective multi-point network measurements, and is able to select a suitable parametric model optimizing the trade-off between fitting and complexity. Therefore, it can (i) correlate records collected from several vantage points and detect where performance issues are most likely to appear; (ii) adjust alarms in terms of the probability of events; and (iii) adapt its behavior to dynamic network conditions while presenting a fair identification of anomalous situations. We evaluate dPRISMA with experiments both in virtual environments and with real-world data to provide evidences of its applicability.
The 14th International Conference on Network and Service Management (CNSM) is inviting authors to submit original contributions in the network and service management research area. CNSM 2018 is a selective single-track conference, covering all aspects of the management of networks and services, pervasive systems, enterprises, and cloud computing environments. The core track is accompanied by a series of workshops and poster sessions.
Papers accepted and presented at CNSM 2018 will be published open access on the conference Web site (with IFIP copyright) and will be submitted for possible inclusion in IEEE Xplore, ACM and IFIP Digital Libraries. Authors of selected papers accepted for publication in CNSM 2018 proceedings will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers to the IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management journal.
