Network monitoring of automated harbor terminals: Nätverksövervakning av automatiserade hamnterminaler
Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Nowadays, more information and services are migrated into computers using a network as the carrier for data communication. One example of this is the migration from PROFIBUS to PROFINET. The big problem is that there are no network monitoring solution implemented, despite the significance of the network. The drawback of not having a network monitor solution are many. This includes areas within security, availability, control and troubleshooting. The goal is to find a solution to this problem with providing a complete network monitor solution in ABB’s existing environment. The work was divided in four different parts, research, design, implementation and verification. Information from the World Wide Web (WWW) pointed towards that CentOS (operating system) together with OMD (network monitor software) would be the best choice for this task. The design phase described how all devices should be able to communicate with each other. The implementation part mostly were configuration of devices, such as servers, monitor software, switches and security. The configuration were made by using the built in user interface in each device. The verification part proved that all functions worked as expected, such as security and notifications. Rest of the verification could be seen in the web interface. The result is a complete solution demonstrated in ABB crane system’s lab, which includes a complete set of network devices that exist on sites all around the world.
