A Data Collection Platform for Network Management



Amar Abane, Abdella Battou, Abderrahim Amlou, Tao Zhang


Network management relies on extensive monitoring of network state to analyze network behavior, design optimizations, plan upgrades, and conduct troubleshooting. Network monitoring collects various data from network devices through different protocols and interfaces such as NETCONF and Syslog, and from monitoring tools such as Zeek and Osquery. To unify and automate the monitoring workflow across the network, this paper identifies and discusses the data collection requirements for network management, reviews different monitoring approaches, and proposes an efficient data collection platform that addresses the requirements through an extensible and lightweight protocol. The platform design is demonstrated through an adaptive collection of data for network management based on digital twin technology.
