This section presents how different mechanisms of the MonALISA system work.
The Intrusion Detection System is a new
component of the MonALISA system in its current implementation. It is based on
a distributed agents platform. Each agent gathers different types of attacks
information that is then disseminated to the other agents in order to assure
a safe system.
- The WAN Topology section proposes
a way to construct and use the topology of networks based on standard tools
like traceroute, tracepath and ping.
- The Application Monitoring API is a very
flexible set of programming interfaces orriented at providing the means for
any application to send monitoring information to MonALISA system. The
library provides support for 5 programming languages: C, C++, Java, Perl
- Monitoring VRVS section shows how
MonALISA is used to monitor, administrate and self-organize the VRVS System.
- People need to share their resources among themselves for extending their
Based on the MonALISA agent platform, we have developed a
storage and retrieval system.
It is a distributed, peer-to-peer, completely descentralized system that is
well aware of its environment's dynamism.
- The Local Information Service Agent
is a lightweight monitoring agent that runs on any end-user's system
(Linux, Windows, or MacIntosh) using Java Web Start technology.
The LISA agent detects the architecture on which it is deployed and dynamically
loads the binary applications necessary to perform monitoring and end-to-end
network performance measurements.
Optical Control Planes section presents how MonALISA agents are used to
monitor and control optical switches and how to create on demand an optical
path/tree for end user applications.
