COMP520 - Building a better network monitoring system




Network Monitoring Systems are essential in running the complex computer networks of today. They ensure all faults on the network are known and assist the network operator in fixing these faults. There are problems with the typical NMSs used for monitoring networks, both with the difficulty of configuration and the age of these systems. The popular NMSs in use today are either themselves old or extended from old systems designed a decade ago for monitoring much simpler and smaller networks.

This project aims to plan and implement a system designed from the start to monitor a modern network and includes all tools in a single extendable system. By using today's technologies and making good design decisions, this project aims to build a unified and fresh NMS that is easy to configure, maintain and use, streamlining the workflow of a network operator.
