SCAMPI is a two-and-a-half-year European project to develop a scaleable monitoring platform for the Internet. It also aims to promote the use of monitoring tools for improving services and technology.
SCAMPI involves ten partners from the commercial, research and academic sectors and represents a total investment of EUR 5.5 million; 50% of which will come from the project partners themselves, and 50% from the Information Society Technologies Programme of the European Commission. The project started on 1 April 2002 and runs until 30 September 2004.
- Development of a high-performance intelligent monitoring adapter, initially at speeds of 10 Gbps.
- Development of an open and extensible architecture for network monitoring.
- Development of monitoring and measurement tools for denial-of-service detection, SLS auditing, quality-of-service, traffic engineering, traffic analysis, billing and accounting.
- Investigate strategies and methodologies for monitoring systems operating at 100 Gbps and beyond.
- Collaborate with other monitoring activities and standardisation bodies.
- Dissemination of results.
- WP0: Requirements Analysis
This work package will review existing technology and identify the future requirements of network monitoring.
Lead Partner: Uninett
- WP1: Monitoring and Architecture Design
This work package will study the various engineering options for designing an open and extensible architecture from the hardware level to the application programming interface. This includes the middleware for resource control, resource sharing and security. The architecture will be refined as the implementation progresses and more experience is gained from the experiments. This will culminate in a broader set of recommendations for next-generation environments.
Lead Partner: FORTH
- WP2: System Integration
This work package will implement the hardware and software components of the SCAMPI platform and undertake integration and testing. It will also develop monitoring tools such as denial-of-service detection, traffic engineering, SLS monitoring and traffic analysis.
Lead Partner: IMEC
- WP3: Experimental Evaluation
This work package will evaluate the architecture, components and monitoring tools in laboratory, testbed and operational environments. It will provide feedback for architectural refinement and produce an overall assessment of the SCAMPI platform.
Lead Partner: CESNET
- WP4: Project Management and Dissemination
This work package is responsible for the administrative and financial aspects of the project. It will also maintain the 6NET web server, organise two workshops, and develop a pan-European measurement data archive.
