LISA 2000 Abstract

ND: A Comprehensive Network Administration and Analysis Tool

Ellen L. Mitchell, Eric Nelson, & David K. Hess, Texas A&M University


ND is a software tool developed by the Computing and Information Services Network Group at Texas A&M University (TAMU) to aid in the engineering and operation of the campus network. This tool was developed in response to the tremendous growth of the TAMU campus network over the last ten years. ND is designed to provide high-level application functionality while retaining the power and flexibility of a low level tool. It integrates remote network device analysis (via SNMP) with network defining databases (via SQL). ND is written in Python [1] and contains custom modules for interaction with SNMP and MySQL [2].
