Towards a P2P-Based Deployment of Network Management Information

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Standard static centralized network management approaches are unsuitable for managing large, dynamic and distributed networks. Some decentralized approaches based on the P2P model have emerged to overcome the limitations of these centralized approaches like lack of scalability and fault-tolerance. However, the authors do not address issues related to the deployment of management information which is crucial in a decentralized management context because of the heterogeneous nature of this kind of information. Furthermore, current decentralized approaches still faces difficulties to ensure security, persistence and consistency of management information. In this paper, they investigate the use of a DHT as a framework for the deployment of network management information.
