Automatic fault detection and localization in IPnetworks: Active probing from a single node perspective
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Fault management is a continuously demanded function in any kind of network management. Commonly it is carried out by a centralized entity on the network which correlates collected information into likely diagnoses of the current system states. We survey the use of active-on-demand-measurement, often called active probes, together with passive readings from the perspective of one single node. The solution is confined to the node and is isolated from the surrounding environment. The utility for this approach, to fault diagnosis, was found to depend on the environment in which the specific node was located within. Conclusively, the less environment knowledge, the more useful this solution presents. Consequently this approach to fault diagnosis offers limited opportunities in the test environment. However, greater prospects was found for this approach while located in a heterogeneous customer environment.
