Management of Networks and Networked Systems

The course gives a modern introduction into network and systems management. Topics found in traditional network management textbooks, e.g., standards for management protocols, data models, and architectures, are given less space. Emphasis is put on new approaches, such as decentralized management, and the management of emerging technologies, e.g., web services.

After taking the course, students will understand the importance of management in the context of networks, services and distributed systems. They will know the current approaches to manage different technologies and the role of standardization. Finally, they will be able to design and implement simple management functions on a real system.

Rekommenderade förkunskaper

To benefit from the course. students should have a background in computer communication and have basic programming skills in either C/C++ or in Java. For computer communication, I recommend 2G1316 or 2G1501 as introductory courses, and possibly also a follow-up course, such as 2D1392, 2G1305, or 2G1507.


The course is not based on a specific textbook. For an introduction into SNMP, which covers only a part of the course, I recommend William Stallings: SNMP, SNMPv2, SNMPv3, and RMON 1 and 2, Addison-Wesley Pub Co; ISBN: 0201485346; 3rd edition (1998).
