Evaluation of Compression of Remote Network Monitoring Data Streams
Network monitoring and measurement is an invaluable tool for comprehending, analyzing, managing, and optimizing performance and security of networked systems. Network monitoring architectures can take the form of local or distributed deployments of sensors. Local deployments can be very precise and efficient because they benefit from fast links to the central monitoring station, but their scope can be limited to local or small-scale networks. Distributed monitoring infrastructures give a much broader view of the network state, but have the disadvantage that the amount of information they can push back to the central monitoring station is limited by the capacity of the links.
