Abstract: Research community interacts by means of multi-domain networks. Operating policies, set of hardware components, customers, bandwidth configuration varies from network to network. Hard failures like fiber cut, power failures are easy to detect while soft failures which result in packet loss and degrade the throughput are difficult to detect. Present network monitoring tools are subject to single administrative domain. Hence, network cannot be monitored over multiple domains. Performance focused Service Oriented Network monitoring ARchitecture (perfSONAR) is designed and developed by open source community which supports advanced level of network monitoring across multi domain network. In this paper, I have focused on the importance of multi-domain network monitoring and reviewed the work of perfSONAR proposed by various researchers.
Keywords: Hard Failures, Soft failures, perfSONAR.
Scope of the Article: Network Architectures
