Synopses & Reviews
The mysteries and magic of network management are revealed and simplified in this eminently practical text. The author's participatory, hands-on method introduces and demonstrates the fundamental concepts and techniques of network management. By combining applicable software with almost 400 figures and tables, Dr. Burke leads the reader through the intricacies and challenges of this increasingly important field. The text and software focus on device configuration and monitoring of network traffic. and address fault, configuration, performance, and security management.
This is the first textbook that shows students and professionals how to implement network management concepts. The companion software enables instructors to demonstrate basic techniques while allowing students unlimited practice opportunities to master them. A multitude of tables illustrate network implementation and management strategies. Features
- Provides step-by-step configuration of desktop and network devices.
- Explains the use of SNMP packets to "Get" and "Set" standard objects.
- Comprehensively discusses RMON and RMON2 MIBs and uses them to display and analyze network traffic.
- Explains the new SNMPv3 standard and demonstrates how to use it to configure SNMPv3 agents and provide authentication and encryption of SNMPv3 messages.
- Demonstrates desktop and Web-based management protocols.
- Demonstrates how to access, compile and use device-specific enterprise MIBs.
Especially designed for those with limited background in network management, this volume presents the standard networking concepts and provides readers with one of the only books available to demonstrate how to practice those concepts on a small LAN. The manual uses a network management application that enables users to focus on the fundamentals of network management rather than components important on large production networks. The author provides an overview of network management and network management strategies, networking components, configuration client/server components and infrastructure components, as well as SNMP, RMON, RMON2 and other network management tools and initiatives. For Network Administrators, Network Managers and Network Engineers.
