Design and Implementation of an ANTS-Based Test Bed for Collecting Data in Active Framework
The active networks approach has been presented as an alternative technology for solving several problems in conventional networks, mainly in the network management area. This work describes a data retrieval mechanism test bed, including design and implementation, which can be used for managing SNMP enabled networks, based on the ANTS (Active Node Transfer System) toolkit framework developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The results obtained from the experiments have shown that the chosen approach is a good alternative for data retrieving operations.
