Keywords: network monitoring system, computer network, anomaly diagnostics module, information system architecture


This article describes the software architecture level of the computer network operation monitoring system with an anomaly diagnostics module. A software solution for this level of network monitoring system architecture is proposed. Also, the article reflects the results of tests of compliance with the requirements to the architecture of the monitoring system of computer network operation with an anomaly diagnostics module: the ability to cluster anomalies in the network, manual and automatic control of forming scenarios of impact on nodes, the ability to scale the network monitoring system, the availability of separate data storage for statistics and scenarios impact on nodes and other requirements. In addition, this article presents the results of testing the developed software solution. The tests were conducted to cluster computer network anomalies and forming scenarios of impact on the observed unstable network nodes. The results show that the developed software allows you to cluster anomalies in the computer network, as well as during additional diagnostics of unstable nodes to form scenarios of impact on such nodes.
