Olav Kvittem, UNINETT

Olav Kvittem is Director of Experimental Networks at UNINETT, the Norwegian Research Network. He has been active in academic networking since 1987, and his main fields of interest are network management, traffic measurement, mobility, and QoS.
Abstract: UNINETT, a distributed academic research network in Norway, has created its own set of network management tools. We are focusing on automated statistics-gathering and presentation for proactive problem solution and customer information.

Our tools\' most unique features are listed below, with toolnames in parentheses:

  • Autozooming geographic network map and info system (possibly the first and only).

  • Animation on map of any measured parameter, such as link and CPU load, packet loss and delay, or network flow parameters (Nemo)

  • Automated, scaled, link statistics gathering (zino)

  • Network status monitoring tool with precise link failure statistics (zino)

  • Aggregation with Web-based trend graphs and sorted tables for all statistics

  • Round trip measurements for IPv4/IPv6 with statistical parameters (mping)

  • Netflow collection (flow-tools), aggregation and presentation

  • Passive monitoring data collection system (Scampi)

  • Campus network management system with automated topology discovery and statistics, shadow suppression alarms, load map, and mac-address tracing (Nav)
