TASK – 1
a) Summarize the attached research article in One to two pages. the summary should include the main idea presented in the paper with appropriate explanation. b) Write your reflection on the network management architecture from the research paper.(advantages, disadvantages, etc) (Proper Referencing and documentation is required).
TASK – 2
As a network manager for a small/medium company, you are required to be aware of the health of your LAN and help in taking decisions regarding its growth, security and utilization rules by remotely monitoring some probes. You started your Remote monitoring project by setting a number of objectives:
1. The current utilization percentage of the bandwidth and its trend.
2. Create history reports
3. Know which conversations (communicating hosts) are generating most traffic.
4. Define the settings to capture a specific type of frames.
5. Set a number of alarms raised by some critical states.
6. Monitor the traffic for some upper layer’s traffic.
For each objective described in this task, you are required to find the RMON group and tables that will be pulled to get or set from it some parameters as well as all objects that will be used. For some objectives, you need to set first the control table associated.
Example: To determine the traffic statistics with one host, we need to access the tables: “hostControlTable” and “hostTable” in the Host group.
The objects that can be invocated: In “hostControlTable”: hostControlTableSize and hostControlLastDeletedTime, hostControlStatus,hostControlIndex. In “hostTable” : hostAddress, hostCreationOrder and hostIndex.
you need to give an example for the selected objects with a clear explanation.
Example: In “hostControlTable”: hostControlTableSize=10: The number of hostEntries in the hostTable is 10. It is calculated by
counting distinct MAC addresses in the frames read.
hostControlLastDeletedTime=0;is the value of sysUpTime in the System group of mib-2 at which a row in the hostTable was deleted. If no deletion was done than this number is set to 0.
For all other objects described in task a), you need to provide an example and its explanation.
***how many groups in the Object
***if one, write about it and write about the tables in it?
***if more than one group, write about them and write about the tables included in each group
You are required to conduct a comparison research about 5 Open source tools for Network monitoring and write a report based on it. The report must include the features and limitations of each tool.
*** Citation and Referencing Using CU Harvard Style is Required.
*** Support your answers with diagrams or graphs.
*** Word Count: Min 3000 words
