In the last few years, some measurement infrastructures have been proposed as a form of efficiently evaluating the performance of computer networks. Despite the advantages of these infrastructures, their usage in large scale scenarios has been presenting critical problems, preventing their wider adoption. One of the reasons for this situation is the lack of management support for the monitoring devices located in different administrative domains. This work evaluates a group of measurement infrastructures to then present a management model for such infrastructures. The proposed model maintains the administrative independence of the present points in the infrastructure and allows the interaction among them in terms of specific functions of management. In order to validate the proposed model we developed a management system prototype, which is presented in this paper as well.
