  • Publication number: 20120207046
    Abstract: A method for monitoring a network, wherein the network has a connected graph topology, in particular a tree structure, including a plurality of monitoring nodes that collect network measurement data, a plurality of mediator nodes each performing at least the task of aggregating network measurement data received from different monitoring nodes and/or other mediator nodes, and at least one root entity that receives network measurement data and/or aggregated network measurement data from the mediator nodes, is characterized in that the aggregation of network measurement data is performed by condensing network measurement data into a summarized probabilistic data structure. Furthermore, a network including a monitoring functionality is disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20120198062
    Abstract: For providing a simple monitoring mechanism with reduced resource and performance requirements a method for monitoring traffic in a network is claimed, wherein a monitoring activity of at least two monitoring probes of the network is coordinated by a coordinating element, wherein at least two nodes of the network are able to operate as coordinating elements and wherein the responsibility for coordinating the monitoring activity of the monitoring probes is split between the nodes according to a compressed representation of flow parameter keys. Further, an according network is described, preferably for carrying out the above mentioned method.
