Abstract

Distributed hierarchical network monitoring model has been proposed to solve scalability problem of centralized model. In this distributed model, a top-level monitoring manager, called main manager, obtains aggregate management information from mid-level managers, named domain managers, forming a hierarchical structure. However, if some of monitoring managers crash, network elements cannot be continuously and correctly monitored until the managers are repaired. To address this important, but previously unresolved issue, this paper presents a new fault-tolerance protocol for domain managers, named DMFTP, allowing the managers to efficiently utilize their organization structure. Therefore, this protocol can minimize failure detection overhead and the number of live managers affected by each manager node crash. Also, it tolerates concurrent manager failures and, after the failed managers have been repaired, ensures their immediate and consistent recovery.
