Network Management Fundamentals

  • Author: Clemm A.
  • Publisher: Cisco press
  • Year: 2006
  • ISBN: 1-58720-137-2
  • Description:
Network management is an essential factor in successfully operating a network. As a company becomes
increasingly dependent on networking services, keeping those services running is synonymous with
keeping the business running. Network Management Fundamentals provides you with an accessible
overview of network management covering management not just of networks themselves but also of
services running over those networks.

Network Management Fundamentals explains the different technologies that are used in network
management and how they relate to each other. The book focuses on fundamental concepts and
principles. It provides a solid technical foundation for the practitioner to successfully navigate
network management topics and apply those concepts to particular situations.

The book is divided into four parts:
* Part I provides an overview of what network management is about and why it is relevant. It also
  conveys an informal understanding of the functions, tools, and activities that are associated with
  it.
* Part II examines network management from several different angles, culminating in a discussion of
  how these aspects are combined into management reference models.
* Part III provides more detail into different building blocks of network management introduced in
  Part II, such as management protocols, management organization, and management communication
  patterns.
* Part IV rounds out the book with a number of management topics of general interest, including
  management integration and service-level management.

ROSE, MARSHALL T. 9404-0193

The simple book (2nd ed.): an introduction to internet management.
Prentice-Hall, Inc., Englewood Cliffs, NJ, 1994, 456 pp., $55, ISBN 0-13-177254-6.
[Prentice Hall series in innovative technology.]

This second edition is a thorough revision and extension of its predecessor. The structure is more
carefully chosen, and in many places the explanations are more carefully worded and structured.
As two examples, the current chapter 5 on the "Administrative Model" and chapter 6 on the
"Operational Model" replace the more obscure chapters on "Mechanism: SNMP" and
"Policy: Applications" in the first edition.

The aim of the book is to describe the problem of network management, specifically management of
the large and still rapidly growing Internet system. Chapter 2 deals with the Internet suite of
protocols. Chapter 3 covers the main concepts of network management. Chapters 4 to 6 discuss the
information management, administration, and operation of the Internet, respectively. Chapter 7
discusses implementation issues, specifically for the simple network management protocol (SNMP),
and chapter 8 talks about possible future developments.

Like the first edition, this revised edition maintains an unassuming, casual style of explanation
that makes it a true pleasure to read.

  • Description:
Review by Richard Dragan on amazon.com

The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and the related Remote Network Monitoring (RMON)
standards make it possible for network administrators to control and monitor even the most
complicated networks. In a textbook-style treatment, William Stallings's SNMP, SNMPv2, SNMPv3, and
RMON 1 and 2 explains what's behind this family of popular networking standards.

The book begins with some theory about what tasks network administrators need to do, such as
monitoring performance, faults, and accounting, along with configuration and security control. The
guide then describes SNMP -- which was introduced in 1989 -- as a successful solution to the basic
problems of network administration. (One of the strengths of SNMP is that it allows administrators
to work with disparate networks running on TCP/IP.) The author details how an SNMP Management
Information Base (MIB), which stores network information, is organized and also how the protocol
works to collect and store network information.

The RMON standard actually uses SNMP with its own MIB format to collect statistics about a network.
The author provides detailed descriptions of this information, along with RMON filters and alarms,
which can be used to troubleshoot a network.

New and improved standards RMONv2, SNMPv2, and SNMPv3 comprise the remainder of this book. RMONv2
allows network administration of more kinds of networks and devices. SNMPv2 provides enhanced
administration capabilities, while SNMPv3 adds the security and encryption that was lacking in
earlier versions of the protocol.

This textbook is crammed with tables and statistics, and shows off the author's command of the
relevant networking standards. Much more readable than the Request for Comments (RFC) documents that
describe these standards, this title provides a comprehensive reference work on SNMP and RMON for
the working Internet professional.
