A Virtual World for Network Management

A Virtual World for Network Management
Existing network management systems typically use a combination of textual displays and 2D directed graph representations of network topology. We are designing a network management system that instead uses a virtual world presented through a 3D stereo display and manipulated with a 3D mouse. Our goal is to allow the user to better understand and control the structure and behavior of a large, complex network. In our current prototype, the user interacts with a 3D representation of a network whose topology and behavior is specified by a separate network emulator. The user can choose from among a set of different views of the network. For example, one view shows a selected virtual path as a series of logical links contained within a physical path. The system will ultimately serve as a testbed for the knowledge-based design of network visualizations.
