Protocols for Distributed Embedded Management
2012 (English)In: Network-Embedded Management and Applications: Understanding Programmable Networking Infrastructure / [ed] A. Clemm and R. Wolter, Springer Publishing Company, 2012, 1, 263-290 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
We survey approaches to distributed management and highlightan architecture that is especially suited for embedded management in a largenetwork. We then discuss in detail two fundamental classes of protocols thatexecute as embedded functions within such an architecture. The rst is theclass of Echo protocols, which can be used for distributed polling, globalstate estimation, resource discovery, and distributed conguration. The sec-ond class is that of GAP protocols, whose main application is continuousreal-time monitoring. Both classes are based on distributed trees, which arecreated during the execution of the protocols. Furthermore, both protocolsperform in-network aggregation of the results from local operations on net-work elements. When presenting the protocols, we discuss their underlyingdistributed algorithms, their performance properties, such as overhead andexecution times, and possible extensions for operational use. We limit thediscussion to a single administrative domain.
