Nowadays rapid growth of computer networks makes the count of network devices rise. Various devices appeared from different vendors, thus making a heterogeneous, complicated mesh network. Managing these devices at real-time is one of the biggest tasks. In this diploma thesis a new, effective framework will be implemented, which can capable of managing network devices.
First I will talk about the need for managing network devices in a corporate network and the applied methods used for managing these devices.
Then I will make a comparison of today’s management applications about effectiveness and their functions.
I will demonstrate several different method and algorithm for real-time monitoring of network devices and for discovering automatically the topology of networks.
I will implement the previously mentioned framework which can capable of making topology map from monitored devices.
And at last I will present the framework's functions and I will test these functions in a real network environment.
