Network Anomaly Confirmation, Diagnosis and Remediation

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Identifying and diagnosing network traffic anomalies, and rectifying their effects are standard, daily activities of network operators. While there is a large and growing literature on techniques for detecting network anomalies, there has been little or no treatment of what to do after a candidate anomaly has been identified. In this paper, the authors present a first step toward formalizing and automating the time-consuming and challenging tasks associated with network anomaly confirmation, diagnosis and remedy. The work assumes that potential anomalies are identified either through visual analysis of key traffic measurements or from a Network Anomaly Detection System (NADS). They describe a flexible framework for network anomaly confirmation, diagnosis and remedy that is based on workflow concepts.
