Due to the emerging growth of computer networks, broadly based measurements, monitoring and management become necessary, for example, to solve occurring problems. Lots of different concepts exist for each of the mentioned functionality. Therefore, distributed network control architectures integrating all of these functionalities are in the focus of current research. To take advantage of this architectures, advanced data aggregation and management schemes are required because an efficient access to the distributed data is critical in this case. In this paper, we present a data aggregation and management scheme that improves the performance of data handling in Integrated Network Control environments. The Integrated Network Control concept is enhanced by an multidimensional on-line analytical processing (OLAP) scheme. A performance analysis shows that the proposed scheme noticeably improves the overall performance of the Integrated Network Control environment.
