Riassunto analitico
Carrier Ethernet is an important step forward that combines cost advantages of well known Ethernet technology with the needs of network providers: it extends Ethernet capabilities from the usual LAN domain to MAN and backbones. To accomplish this, scalability, traffic engineering and network management issues have been addressed by IEEE, ITU-T and MEF standardizing organizations, resulting in a series of new standards. The new Operation, Administration and Maintenance (OAM) functions play a key role to monitor the network status and performance, as they provide the foundations for load balancing on paths, congestion control, fault recovery and challenges a provider has to face.<br><br>In this thesis a graphical interactive performance monitor for such a network is designed and implemented, with a special focus on point-to-multipoint topologies. Compared to classical command line interfaces, it enables a faster acknowledgement of problems and gives multiple parallel views of the network, from global to local.
