Abstract

This paper discusses an object oriented approach to network management. The goal of this paper is to briefly explain a real example of an Integrated Network Management (INM) system. One of the major requirements when looking at information transfer between the managed network and the management system is to mask the heterogeneity of the underlying resources. As an example of the unification of heterogeneous networks, a software called the Integrator has been designed and implemented. The Integrator is a mechanism that provides an object oriented interface to the user (human or network management application programs) to offer a homogeneous view of a world (set of heterogeneous domains) through a model (depicting a formal information view). The Integrator uses two agents to communicate with underlying network elements: an SNMP agent accessing TCP/IP parameters for an Ethernet network through a SNMP agent, and an X.25 interface program doing the same for X.25 parameters through proprietary management software. The concepts of the Integrator have been applied in the EC project PEMMON.
