  • Large-scale Measurement Platforms
    (V. Bajpai, N. Melnikov, AIMS 2013, Barcelona, June 2013)
    This tutorial provides an introduction into large-scale measurement platforms. It begins by surveying active measurement studies that paved way for the deployment of such platforms. It then describes the internals of the RIPE Atlas and SamKnows platforms, their architecture and surveys the work published from insights discovered from the collected data. The first part concludes by  introducing the current Large Scale Measurement of Access Network Performance (LMAP) standardisation efforts in the IETF. The second part of the tutorial provides practical training on how to virtualise an OpenWrt-based Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) and bootstrap it to register as a Measurement Agent (MA) with a LMAP controller. The MA is then used to install a measurement test, schedule the reporting of the measurement test results and use a REST API to send and retrieve the measurement results back from the LMAP collector. The tutorial also provides training on how to use the RIPE Atlas REST API to create User Defined Measurements (UDMs) , and retrieve the UDM measurement results. It concludes with a description of the UDM result data structures and a summary of  how programming tools can be used to analyse such data.

  • Management of the Internet of Things
    (J. Schönwälder, A. Sehgal, IM 2013, Ghent, May 2013)
    This tutorial looks into the challenges and into new enabling technologies that likely play a major role in the Internet of Things and its management.
  • Network Configuration Management with NETCONF and YANG
    (J. Schönwälder, 84th IETF, Vancouver, July 2012)
    The tutorial provides an introduction to NETCONF and YANG, the motivation for creating it, the current implementation and deployment status, and an outlook on potential future developments.
  • Running a Cloud Computing Infrastructure with OpenStack
    (A. Sehgal, AIMS 2012, Luxembourg, June 2012)
    The tutorial provides a hands on introduction to setting up and working with OpenStack Diablo. Installation of a cloud computing infrastructure, along with creating users and projects is covered.The tutorial also covers exercises related to registering and uploading VM images, instantiating VMs, configuring public network and associating persistent block storage.

  • NETCONF and YANG – Status, Tutorial, Demo
    (J. Schönwälder, 75th IETF, Stockholm, July 2009)
    The tutorial provides a hands-on introduction to NETCONF and YANG. Several code examples are discussed that highlight various features of the NETCONF protocol and the YANG data modeling language.
  • Introduction to IEEE 802.15.4 and IPv6 over 802.15.4
    (J. Schönwälder, AIMS 2009, Enschede, June 2009)
    The tutorial provides an introduction to the IEEE 802.15.4 standard for low-power, low-speed, low-cost wireless networks and the 6LoWPAN adaptation layer defined by the IETF enabling IPv6 over IEEE 802.15.4. Some ideas concerning the management of such networks are discussed as well.
  • Introduction to NETCONF and YANG
    (J. Schönwälder, IM 2009, New York, June 2009)
    The tutorial introduces the NETCONF protocol and the YANG data modeling language currently being standardized by the IETF. The NETCONF protocol provides mechanisms to install, manipulate, and delete the configuration of network devices, represented as an XML document. YANG is a data modeling language for NETCONF developed by a small design team in 2007.
  • Internet Management: Status and Challenges
    (J. Schönwälder, IM 2005, Nice, May 2005)
    This tutorial discusses the status of Internet management standards and reviews ongoing standardization efforts within the IETF. It is targeted towards people who are familiar with basic Internet management concepts and who want to learn about the latest developments related to Internet management technologies.
  • Internet Management: Status and Challenges
    (A. Pras, J. Schönwälder, NOMS 2004, Seoul, April 2004)
    The tutorial is to discusses the status of Internet management standardization. It has three main parts. In the first part we will give the status of IETF management standards, and present an overview of the goals and results of recent IETF working groups. The first part concludes with a critical analysis of the IETF management standardization process. The second part focuses on monitoring and the third part of this tutorial focuses on configuration management.
