geant CMon: Multi-Domain Circuit Monitoring System Based on GEANT perfSONAR MDM

Global research collaborations today require robust, secure and dedicated network connections to facilitate data communication between collaborating partners. In order to manage and process such large amount of data, dedicated connections are required to transport data in a highly efficient manner. Managing such links that often traverse multiple geographically spaced domains with heterogeneous network infrastructure poses many compelling research challenges, one of which is inter-domain network monitoring. Hence, CMon is introduced to address the topic of multi-domain circuit monitoring. Building upon some services provided by GÉANT perfSONAR MDM, CMon aims to provide end-to-end circuit monitoring services with flexibility, extensibility, and vendor independency, regardless of the underlying circuit provisioning systems.
