netTransformer team is proud to anounce that the "Pirin" release of our network transformation manager has been released. Pirin is one of the most beautiful mountains in Bulgaria. If you have never heard about it have a look here. We had some beautiful moments there thus we named netTransformer v0.7 on the mountain.
What’s new in netTransformer Pirin
netTransformer “Pirin” release has a number of enhancements.
We work conscientiously to give students the opportunity to conduct their degree projects with us. For two reasons: First of all because we began our careers in a similar fashion, we know how important it is to get the chance to translate theoretical knowledge into practical action.
This is the first public release of netTransformer. It combines the best from iTransformer version 0.5 and bgpPeeringMap version 0.2. Besides that it supports a number of new features such as ranking algorithms, improved configurability, better network activation and several BGP peering Map enhancements.
iTransformers product portfolio includes a couple of open products:
iTransformer is a product able to perform SNMP network discoveries and to visualize large Internet Service Provider infrastructures. It is also able to influence the current state of the IP network through activation of various network templates.
iTransformers research interest is related mostly on topics such as network transition and evolution. The projects we are able to offer are tightly related to netTransformer. Currently we can offer graduation projects in the following areas:
In netTransformer 0.61 we have added a utility for monitoring BGP incomming or outgoint update messages. The idea behid this is that such monitor could help network engineers in identification of major Internet BGP disrutions.
Currently the tool is monitorring bgpPeerInUpdates (126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.1.10) or bgpPeerOutUpdates (184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.1.12) through SNMP network protocol.
Note that the tool is creating a graph of the delta between two updates. The minimum update interval is 10 minutes (600000 ms).
