Network configuration using XML
MetadataShow full item record
The primary goal of this thesis is to investigate the use of the eXtensible Markup Language (XML) as a network configuration language. Network configuration is a difficult and time- consuming task. Current network configuration solutions are based on proprietary configuration languages and parsers. XML is a platform-neutral data representation language and worldwide standard. It is potentially advantageous to use XML to configure networks, however, XML was not developed for network configuration. A new XML based configuration solution for the Server and Agent Active Network Management System (SAAM) is provided to marshal evidence that XML can be used effectively as a network configuration language.
