Abstract

Network management becomes increasingly difficult due to the heterogeneity of all the components as well as network growth in size and complexity. It is necessary therefore to turn to new architectures for scalable, distributed, and interoperable network management systems based on open communication standards that can cope efficiently with highly complex environments. In this contribution, the use of web services as an open communication standard for building integrated network management systems is proposed. Their functionalities are wrapped in web services that can be described in wsdl, discovered by uddi and accessed through soap openly.

A prototype system of managing the testing network is implemented in order to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed system. It is installed as two different network management systems of opennms, ntop and nagios. Each management system consists of several basic management functions such as monitoring traffic and network resources. Communications among management systems using the web services technologies contain three parts of service registry installed at the main manager, service provider installed at each management system and service requester use at a web services client.
