Date of Defense 2010-07-06 Availability unrestricted AbstractWe present two tools that utilize the end-to-end approach for
topology discovery for Ethernet switched LANs.
Unlike existing Ethernet topology discovery
methods that rely on Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
queries to obtain topology information, our tools infer topology based on
end-to-end message exchanges. This method allows our tools to work on
Ethernet switched LANs that use managed and/or unmanaged
Ethernet switches without requiring any special privileges.
We discuss the key concepts, the algorithms used, and report the evaluation
for each tool.
