Abstract:

This report presents the results of a study of design considerations for hybrid monitor systems for distributed microcomputer networks. The objective of the study was to determine the feasibility of such monitor systems and to look at typical designs. A Detailed survey of literature was carried out and the characteristics of existing monitor systems were established. The report presents a conceptual design for a monitor system for distributed microcomputer networks obtained by adapting certain aspects of existing systems to the specialized requirements of microcomputer networks. Several novel features are incorporated into the design to minimize overhead and enhance useability. A typical implementation of the conceptual design using state-of-the-art hardware is given and its operation on a specific monitoring task is considered in detail.
