Abstract:

This thesis examines the network management functions required for a local computer network. Initially, general management considerations are addressed. These include problem determination, performance analysis, problem management, change management, configuration management, and operations management. The sidestream, mainstream, centralized, decentralized, and hybrid network monitoring technologies are then discussed. An investigation of network measurement tools and their use in generating management reports is undertaken. The topics of analysis timing, performance measure utilization, and parameter selection are considered. Procedures for detecting, diagnosing and correcting network component failures are presented. Solutions are proposed for problems associated with managing a local computer network-long haul network interface. Finally, a discussion of the mission, objectives, and responsibilities of a local computer network central monitoring site is undertaken. Author
