Paper Abstract

To quantify the operational characteristics of a network against a contracted QoS SLA, it is necessary to monitor individual network elements as well as the end-to-end network-level and service-level behavior. Such monitoring technology should also be capable of emulating certain key characteristics of applications that use the network, with the intention of better approximating the user experience. This layered monitoring approach drill down from a service view, to a network view and finally to an individual component element view. In this new layered management model, correlation of fault and performance events becomes the central focus of the solution, along with a meaningful presentation of this correlated information in the context of the services supported across the network.
