    Management systems are responsible for monitoring, interpreting, and controlling network operations. Management platform workstations query device data, or obtain event modifications through management protocols. The management platform supports tools to display the data graphically, interpret it, and control operations. It is argued that the main challenge of management standardization is to deve...

    Work aimed at describing the most adequate framework for the design of real-time network management systems and the associated interfaces for open systems is discussed. This framework has been developed by integrating three mathematical techniques: automatic control theory for discrete-event systems, which provides the architectural framework and is the unifying theme that holds together the vario...

    An overview of Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) modeling principles and concepts as contained in the systems management information model is presented. Object-oriented modeling principles as applied to OSI systems management are reviewed. The notions of inheritance, compatibility, and allomorphism are included. There is a description of how managed objects (MOs) are named. A reference to notatio... View full abstract»

    The common management information service element (CMISE), an application service element (ASE) developed to support the management application of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) applications layer, is discussed. It was developed in response to the need to monitor and control the health of OSI communications entities. Similarly, the simple network management protocol (SNMP) was developed in...

    The performance management model, an object-oriented model upon which the ANSI performance management interface standard is based, is discussed. The managed objects, the relationships between the objects and the behavior of the objects in the model are reviewed. In order to illustrate the power and flexibility of the model, several examples are presented that show how the model may be tailored to ... View full abstract»

  • Using SMI to model SNA networks

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):60 - 67
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1460 KB)

    Some of the techniques used in the development of a management information model (MIM) for Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) management of systems network architecture (SNA) resources are examined. The identification of object classes, cataloging of attributes of SNA objects, actions taken on SNA objects, notifications from SNA objects, and SNA class definitions used in the modeling of SNA are di...

    The application of an object-oriented approach to modeling the application and presentation layer of the human-machine interfaces in a telecommunications management network architecture is described. It is argued that a significant simplification in information interchange between human and machine occurs when the machine has a model of the user to which it can conform. Several aspects of user mod... View full abstract»

    Experience acquired in the development of an interface between a fiber optic system and a prototype management system developed using an object-oriented approach is discussed. Open System Interconnection (OSI) implementation concerns, the use of an ASN.1 compiler, and the use of standard application programming interfaces (APIs) are described. The role of the seven-layer OSI stack in exchanging in... View full abstract»
