Network Research at Avaya Labs Research The ExpertNet and Chatter Teams Akshay Adhikari Mark Bearden Lorraine Denby Bengi Karacali Jean Meloche Balaji Rao David Stott Among many others
Challenges Network topology discovery Heisenberg –Probes load the network at the worst time –Path or end to end performance but not both Visualizations for paths –Topology and paths –Route changes Synchronization and One way delay Load balancing and packet loss Missing values and clean up Complexity of networks Volume of data (GB per day)
Discovery via the fusion of multiple data sources SNMP IP RR Traceroute I/O octet count correlation Delay distance End to end shadow of network events
Link level network delay via TTL flood Multiple packets with IP RR for a range of TTL are sent between endpoints ICMP messages are received from routers along the way Results are used to estimate link level delays
Network Sampling Design Where to place the probes –Minimize the number of probes needed –Minimize the degeneracy –Subject to many constraints Where to measure QoS attributes and covariates –Minimize the footprint –Minimize the time to blame Dynamic sampling programs
Chatter Distributed network monitor Lives on cheap 100 MHz box Online root cause analysis Seeks failure patterns among arbitrary covariates that are not specified a priori Uses adaptive control charts on important QoS attributes to identify interesting conditions
Compression Compression is needed to prevent the transmission and storage of uninteresting data The data are highly dimensional The collection is distributed How should the compression be distributed
Localization Data collection is distributed What methods are local (analysis requiring only the local data) or near local (analysis requiring limited exchange of information between neighbors)? Are there sampling design that affect localization?
