In order to enhance the inter-domain QoS analysis in large-scale, multi-domain Internet infrastructures, the project INTERMON will develop and demonstrate a scalable inter-domain QoS architecture with integrated monitoring, topological and geographical structure mapping, modelling, simulation, optimisation and visual data mining components using common distributed QoS database with intelligent agents for management of component's interworking and automated processing of different kind of inter-domain QoS information (inter-domain QoS, traffic, resource, events). The focus is to offer to Internet service providers (ISP), QoS enabled end system developers and application users, an integrated inter-domain QoS analysis architecture for the purpose of operative control, planning and optimisation. Objectives: The aim is a novel scalable inter-domain QOS analysis architecture for large interconnected Internet domains (DiffServ,MPLS) based on integration of monitoring, modelling, structure mapping, simulation, optimisation and visual data mining components using a common distributed database with intelligent agents for management of toolkit interworking and automated processing of different kind of inter-domain information (e.g. monitoring and modelling information for long term trends and short experiments on inter-domain QoS and traffic behaviour of application classes, visualisation models for inter-domain QoS, inter-domain QoS optimisation models, resource and event information, etc). The inter-domain QoS architecture will be validated in field trials involving multiple QoS based domains. Work description: 1. Definition of inter-domain QoS analysis framework for test and verification of inter-domain QoS of application classes (e.g. Internet telephony, videoconferencing, etc) in large interconnected QoS based domain infrastructures. 2. Design of scalable inter-domain QoS analysis architecture with integrated monitoring, topological and geographical QoS structure mapping, modelling, simulation, optimisation and visual data mining components using common distributed QoS database. 3. Impl. of a prototype of integrated inter-domain QoS analysis architecture: - Distributed inter-domain database with intelligent agents for management of tool interworking and automated information processing - Integrated inter-domain QoS monitoring toolkit including passive monitoring, active probing tools and event detection tools - Modelling toolkit including algorithms and tools (long term trend and short term experiments) for prediction of inter-domain QoS for application classes, network-performance models, event patterns, traffic profiles - Automated mapping of Internet topological and geographical structures including options for mapping of inter-domain QoS, traffic, resource, events and network-performance issues to autonomous systems (BGP routing), countries, equipment (multiple IP addresses map to the same router), and geographic location information (latitude/longitude co-ordinates) - Simulation environment for inter-connected QoS based domain (MPLS, DiffServ) infrastructures and QoS enabled application classes combined with optimisation toolkit - Visual data mining environment (models, tools and advanced multidimensional techniques) for specific kind of inter-domain QoS and traffic analysis. Milestones: M6: Specification of inter-domain data-base; M8: Specification of models and simulation tools; M9: Specification of visual data mining tools; M13 : begin of component tests and integration; M21: full system integration and trial: inter-domain QoS analysis architecture, inter-domain QoS monitoring toolkit, inter-domain QoS modelling framework, inter-domain QoS simulation and optimisation framework, visualisation data mining components for inter-domain QoS analysis.
