Re: research questions
When you say "Active and Programmable network" you also mean QoS
Discovery, I mean finding/discovering QoS capable network equipments
and identifing what kind of QoS resources are available/in use ?
I've been studing it (QoS discovery) and right now I am looking for
alternative ways of getting resource information from network equipments,
e.g., not just SNMP, LDAP, X.500, etc.
ps.: sorry by my english.
