Efficient Probing Techniques for Fault Diagnosis
Source: University of Delaware
Increase in the network usage and the widespread application of networks for more and more performance critical applications has caused a demand for tools that can monitor network health with minimum management traffic. Adaptive probing holds a potential to provide effective tools for end-to-end monitoring and fault diagnosis over a network. In this paper the authors present adaptive probing tools that meet the requirements to provide an effective and efficient solution for fault diagnosis. In this paper, the authors propose adaptive probing based algorithms to perform fault localization by adapting the probe set to localize the faults in the network. They compare the performance and efficiency of the proposed algorithms through simulation results.
