Status of this Memo

   This memo provides information for the Internet community.  It does
   not specify an Internet standard.  Distribution of this memo is
   unlimited.

Abstract

   The goal of this FYI memo is to provide an update to FYI 2, RFC 1147
   [1], which provided practical information to site administrators and
   network managers.  New and/or updated tools are listed in this RFC.
   Additonal descriptions are welcome, and should be sent to: noctools-
   entries@merit.edu.

Introduction

   A static document cannot incorporate references to the latest tools
   nor recent revisions to the older catalog entries.  To provide a more
   timely and responsive information source, the NOCtools catalog is
   available on-line via the Internet and Usenet.

      news    comp.networks.noctools
      ftp     wuarchive.wustl.edu:/doc/noctools

   Because of publication delays and other factors, some of the entries
   in this catalog may be out of date.  The reader is urged to consult
   the on-line service to obtain the most up-to-date information.

   The index provided in this document reflects the current contents of
   the on-line documentation.

   The NOCtools2 Working Group of the Internet Engineering Task Force
   (IETF) has compiled this revised catalog.  Future revisions will be
   incorporated into the on-line NOCtools catalog.  The reader is
   encouraged to submit new or revised entries for (near-immediate)
   electronic publication.

   The tools described in this catalog are in no way endorsed by the
   IETF.  For the most part, we have neither evaluated the tools in this
   catalog, nor validated their descriptions.  Most of the descriptions
   of commercial tools have been provided by vendors.  Caveat Emptor.

Acknowledgements

   This catalog is the result of work on the part of the NOCTools2
   Working Group of the User Services Area of the IETF.  The following
   individuals made especially notable contributions: Chris Myers,
   Darren Kinley, Gary Malkin, Mohamed Ellozy, and Mike Patton.

Current Postings

   The current contents of the NOCtools catalog may be retrieved via
   anonymous FTP from wuarchive.wustl.edu.  The entries are stored as
   individual files in the directory /doc/noctools.

"No-Writeups" Appendix

   This section contains references to tools which are known to exist,
   but which have not been fully cataloged.  If anyone wishes to author
   an entry for one of these tools please contact us at:

        noctools-request@merit.edu

   Keep in mind that if these or other tools are included in the future,
   they will be available in the on-line version of the catalog.

   Each mention is separated by a <form-feed> for improved readability.
   If you intend to actually print-out this section of the catalog, then
   you should probably strip-out the <ff>.

Keywords

   This catalog uses "keywords" for terse characterizations of the
   tools.  Keywords are abbreviated attributes of a tool or its use.  To
   allow cross-comparison of tools, uniform keyword definitions have
   been developed, and are given below.  Following the definitions,
   there is an index of catalog entries by keyword.

Keyword Definitions

   The keywords are always listed in a prefined order, sorted first by
   the general category into which they fall, and then alphabetically.
   The categories that have been defined for management tool keywords
   are:

               o    the general management area to which a tool
                    relates or a tool's functional role;

               o    the network resources or components that are
                    managed;

               o    the mechanisms or methods a tool uses to
                    perform its functions;

               o    the operating system and hardware environment
                    of a tool; and

               o    the characteristics of a tool as a hardware
                    product or software release.

Tool Descriptions

   This section is an updated collection of brief descriptions of tools
   for managing TCP/IP internets.  These entries are in alphabetical
   order, by tool name.

   The entries all follow a standard format.  Immediately after the NAME
   of a tool are its associated KEYWORDS.  Keywords are terse
   descriptions of the purposes or attributes of a tool.  A more

Top       Page 29 
   detailed description of a tool's purpose and characteristics is given
   in the ABSTRACT section.  The MECHANISM section describes how a tool
   works.  In CAVEATS, warnings about tool use are given.  In BUGS,
   known bugs or bug-report procedures are given.  LIMITATIONS describes
   the boundaries of a tool's capabilities.  HARDWARE REQUIRED and
   SOFTWARE REQUIRED relate the operational environment a tool needs.
   Finally, in AVAILABILITY, pointers to vendors, online repositories,
   or other sources for a tool are given.

   Where tool names conflict, the vendor name is used as well.  For
   example, MITRE, and SNMP Research each submitted an updated
   description of a tool called, "NETMON".  These tools were
   independently developed, are functionally different, and run in
   different environments.  MITRE's tool is listed as "NETMON_MITRE,"
   and the tool from SNMP Research as "NETMON_WINDOWS_SNMP_RESEARCH".

        NAME
                ChameLAN 100

        KEYWORDS
                analyzer, benchmark, debugger, generator, map,
                reference, status, traffic; bridge, DECnet, ethernet,

                standalone, UNIX.

        ABSTRACT

                Tekelec's ChameLAN 100 is a portable diagnostic system
                for monitoring and simulation of FDDI, Ethernet and
                Token Ring networks -- simultaneously.  Protocol
                analysis of multiple topologies, as well as mixed
                topoloies simultaneously, is a key feature of
                the product family.  Tekelec's proprietary FDDI
                hardware guarantees complete real-time analysis of
                networks and network components at the full ring
                bandwidth of 125 Mbps.  It passively connects to the
                network and captures 100 percent of the data, measures
                performance and isolates real-time problems.

                The simulation option offers full bandwidth load
                generation that allows you to create and simulate any
                network condition.  It gives you the ability to inject
                errors and misformed frames.  A set of
                confidence tests allow simple evaluation of new
                equipment.  A ring map feature displays network
                topology and status of all nodes via the SMT
                process.

                Monitoring of FDDI, Ethernet and Token Ring allows the
                user to: view network status in real time; view
                network, node, or node pair statistics; capture
                frames; control capture using trigger and filter
                capabilities; view real-time statistics; view captured
                frames in decoded format; and view the last frame
                transmitted by each station.

                The following Real-Time Network Statistics of FDDI,
                Ethernet and Token Ring networks is displayed: frame
                rate, runts, byte rate, jabbers, CRC/align errors, and
                collisions.

                Product developers can use the ChameLAN 100 to observe

Top       Page 34 
                and control various events to help debug their FDDI,
                Ethernet and Token Ring products.  End users can
                perform real-time monitoring to test and
                diagnose problems that may occur when developing,
                installing or managing FDDI, Ethernet and Token Ring
                networks and network products.  End users can use the
                ChameLAN 100 to aid in the installation and
                maintenance of Ethernet and Token Ring networks.  To
                isolate specific network trouble spots the ChameLAN
                100 uses filtering and triggering techniques for data
                capture.  Higher level protocol decode includes
                TCP/IP, OSI and DECnet protocol suites.  Protocol
                decode of IPX, SNMP, XTP, and AppleTalk are also
                supported.  Development of additional protocol decodes
                is also under development.  The ChameLAN 100 family
                also offers a Protocol Management Development System
                (PMDS) that enables users to develop custom protocol
                decode suites.

                The FDDI, Ethernet and Token Ring hardware interfaces
                feature independent processing power.  Real-time data
                is monitored unobtrusively at full bandwidth without
                affecting network activity.  Real-time data may also
                be saved to a 120MB or optional 200MB hard disk drive
                for later analysis.  FDDI data is captured at 125 megabits
                per second (Mbps), Ethernet at 10 Mbps and Token Ring
                at 4 or 16 Mbps.

        MECHANISM
                This portable, standalone unit incorporates the power
                of UNIX, X-Windows and Motif.  Its UNIX-based
                programming interface facilitates development of
                customized monitoring and simulation applications.  The
                ChameLAN 100 may connect to the network at any
                location using standard equipment.  Standard graphical
                Motif/X-Windows and TCP/IP allow remote control
                through Ethernet and 10Base T interfaces.  Tekelec
                also offers a rackmounted model -- ChameLAN 100-X.
                Both models can be controlled via a Sun Workstation
                remotely.

        CAVEATS
                none.

        BUGS
                none known.
