    The IBM framework for network management consists of entry points and service points reporting to a focal point on the behalf of targets, such as the collection of devices connected to a LAN. The NetView Program provides the focal-point function; the NetView/PC Program provides the service-point function. The LAN Manager provides the LAN-specific application operating at the service point, providing a local operator interface for LAN management as well as management-related communication with the focal point. LAN gateways provide entry-point function, reporting to the focal point. The LAN Manager capitalizes on the monitoring and reporting protocols that are inherent in the LAN architecture to provide enhanced management control; it is the common service-point application for both the IBM Token-Ring Network and the IBM PC Network. This management structure provides end-to-end network management through high visibility of the entire network.<> View full abstract»

    A description is given of the automated network management (ANM) system, which assists the network operator and analyst in understanding and controlling complex internets. The ANM system provides an integrated set of tools for real-time monitoring, control, and analysis of internets consisting of diverse network entities such as internet gateways, packet-switching nodes, packet radio systems and hosts. It can reduce maintenance costs by providing capabilities such as fault isolation and alarm generation, so that the network operators can efficiently and effectively monitor and control networks. ANM also provides advanced data gathering, analysis, and presentation tools that enable the network analyst to understand better the behaviour of the network, and to enhance network performance.<> View full abstract»

    A description is given of the OSI (Open Systems Interconnection) management environment, which consists of tools and services needed to control and supervise interconnection activities and any associated managed objects. It is intended to allow a user, once he or she has been provided with the capability of communicating across several subnetworks, to manage this collection of subnetworks and systems as a single communications network. The OSI management structure is examined, and an outline of OSI management services is provided. The common management information protocol (CMIP), a general-purpose management protocol that is suitable for the management of both OSI resources and the real resources used to provide communications services, is presented. Future extensions of OSI management research are discussed.<> View full abstract»

    The digital network architecture (DNA) defines how DECnet networks operate. DNA has evolved over a series of phases, each incorporating technologies. The latest phase of DNA, Phase V, integrates many OSI protocols into DNA. The author surveys the changes to DNA network management in Phase V. In particular, he describes the entity model, which models the management of the network components, and some of the supporting architectures.<> View full abstract»

    HEMS, the high-level entity management system, is an internetwork management protocol designed to work with the TCP-IP protocol suite. HEMS expects each node on a network to support a virtual management database and provides database query language primitives that allow remote users to modify the database. A detailed overview of the system is presented.<> View full abstract»

    The simple gateway monitoring protocol (SGMP) is a simple application-layer protocol that allows logically remote users to inspect or alter management information for a gateway. In the internet context, gateway performs the functions of the classical packet switch. A description is given of the SGMP, its architecture, some of its uses and applications, the author's implementation experience, and some future directions for its development. The design philosophy leading to the SGMP is discussed.<> View full abstract»

    A model is described for managing stand-alone network measurement devices distributed over an interconnected network (i.e. a network of networks, or internet). A host anywhere on the internet can act as a controlling device that manages a scattered set of measurement monitors. A protocol based on this model and the service it provides are discussed. The protocol fits in the application layer of the OSI model.<> View full abstract»
