Productive operation of a large computer network serving multiple user facilities in conjunction with several host sites requires the use of network management. As treated here, network management includes an array of such methods as communication systems management, problem management, change management, and inventory management. In this paper the use of some of the management techniques is described as they apply in an education support facility network. The setup of the facility is first described; then some of the techniques for managing its operation are presented.
