Paper Abstract

Monitoring is the part of Traffic Engineering (TE) that aims at optimizing the use of network resources and assists both in informing the provider and proving to the customer that the service offered respects the SLAs required to optimize the network resources utilization. In this paper, we present a monitoring framework for MPLS-VPN services. We first briefly review MPLS, VPN, NBVPN, Constrained Based Routing to provide a background for the discussion of traffic Engineering. We then discuss the general issues surrounding the design of a MPLS VPN from the point of view of TE and go on to present a management framework that extends the DEN information specific to MPLS VPNs. In this framework, we add policy actions that react dynamically to abnormal results by changing the sampling frequency.
