An Architecture for Supporting Network Fault Recovery Management
Highly available and resilient networks play a decisive role in today's networked world. As network faults are inevitable and networks are getting more and more complicated, finding effective fault recovery solutions in a timely manner is becoming a challenging task for administrators. Therefore, an automated mechanism to support fault resolution is essential towards efficient fault handling process. In this paper we propose an architecture to support automated fault recovery in terms of traffic engineering, recovery knowledge discovery and automated recovery planning. We base our discussion on an application scenario for recovery from border router failure to maintain optimized configuration of outbound inter-domain traffic.
