LAN management in an IBM framework

By: Willett, M.; Martin, R.D.;

1988 / IEEE


This item was taken from the IEEE Periodical ' LAN management in an IBM framework ' The IBM framework for network management consists of entry points and service points reporting to a focal point on the behalf of targets, such as the collection of devices connected to a LAN. The NetView Program provides the focal-point function; the NetView/PC Program provides the service-point function. The LAN Manager provides the LAN-specific application operating at the service point, providing a local operator interface for LAN management as well as management-related communication with the focal point. LAN gateways provide entry-point function, reporting to the focal point. The LAN Manager capitalizes on the monitoring and reporting protocols that are inherent in the LAN architecture to provide enhanced management control; it is the common service-point application for both the IBM Token-Ring Network and the IBM PC Network. This management structure provides end-to-end network management through high visibility of the entire network.<>
