Present Status and Future Directions

We have captured the congestion and throughput pattern of different network paths. A framework, NDWH (Network Data Ware House) is proposed where these network characteristics are made available to the concerned applications and users.

We examine the different sources of network information and examine how network configuration of networks ranging from small scale intranets to the whole Internet can be generated. We are considering applications of the network maps and the obtained characteristics in the areas of fault management, network congestion detection and management, network security management, scheduling of network applications (network conferences, mirroring).
