Abstract

This paper proposes a new efficient mechanism for controlling and managing the resources within and around the active nodes [13]: routers and switches that have a legacy SNMP management system. Existing system such as ABLE [6] has an out-of-band management capability, which is insufficient for managing data flow as the flow progresses through the network. This paper proposes the use of the combined approach of SNAP [2] and SNMP [9] as an efficient network resource management mechanism on the FAIN active nodes [7],[12]. It has an in-band management approach in which each data flow will negotiate its next hop before it goes there; or it can create IPSec tunnels and modify routing table entries for the data flow.
