NeMoS: Network monitoring with sound
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper we present NeMoS, a program written in Java that allows monitoring of a distributed system with sound. The architecture is client/server: the server collects (by polling via SNMP ) data from the monitored Network Components and the client plays accordingly. The sonification technique associates events (as defined by the user) to MIDI tracks. Our system is versatile (several channels of events can be created and used), easily configurable (personalization of events and tracks is offered to users), standard (it fits within the framework described in RFC 2570 ), distributed (multiple clients can be anywhere in the system) and portable (using Java as Programming Language).
