DiMAPI: An Application Programming Interface for Distributed Network Monitoring
Abstract— Network monitoring and measurement is commonly regarded as an essential function for understanding, managing and improving the performance and security of network infrastructures. Traditional passive network monitoring approaches are not adequate for fine-grained performance measurements nor for security applications. In addition, many applications would benefit from monitoring data gathered at multiple vantage points within a network infrastructure. This paper presents the design and implementation of DiMAPI, an application programming interface for distributed passive network monitoring. DiMAPI extends the notion of the network flow with the scope attribute, which enables flow creation and manipulation over a set of local and remote monitoring sensors. Experiments with a number of applications on top of DiMAPI show that it has reasonable performance, while the response latency is very close to the actual round trip time between the monitoring application and the monit...
