KnowNet: Towards a knowledge plane for enterprise network management


Network management tasks remain tedious and error-prone, and often require complex reasoning on the part of the network administrator. With KnowNet we address the challenge of reasoning about network management by approaching it as a set of cooperating applications executing over a knowledge graph which captures data and information about the network and the applications that manage and reason over it. We apply our approach to enterprise network management by developing a suite of cooperating applications that deals with security and application performance management in an enterprise network.
