"Network Management" means different things to different people in the field. To some, it's fine-tuning the performance of their network; to others, it is protecting the network from abuse, both from external threats and from (presumably) well-meaning legitimate users.

Our focus, however (before this becomes a whole book), is on what it means for the CCNA exam. Unlike the old exam objectives, the new ones don't offer us much help. All the outline does is list three items:

All three relate to traffic flowing through a routed/switched network, but they do so in very general terms. The old objectives specifically addressed configuring and monitoring standard and extended access lists -- both IP and IPX -- and SAP filters. There was no objective that actually mentioned either telnet or DNS.

We will focus heavily on access lists, but bear in mind that books have been written on the subject, so we will only wade a little, not swim the English Channel. We'll also address how you can monitor and manage telnet sessions, and enable the use of DNS to allow name resolution for your routers. All these things will be done within the context of basic router operation.

These three tools help you in two ways: managing and securing the traffic flow on your network. Think of the things the users on a network might like to do if it were wide open, their private playground ... or, perhaps, not so private. Keeping the necessary and useful traffic flowing while preventing useless (in the network's terms, anyway) and even dangerous traffic is your job, if not now, then the one you aspire to.

Even though we need to remain focused, it can help to have a broader context for these tools, and to consider the problem we are trying to solve. To that end, let's quickly review some background on network management in general.

Network Management Models

You are familiar with the OSI Reference Model for protocols. Less widely known is the model's annex describing a network management framework. While many of the details of that framework are not relevant to our discussion, a widely used principle is that network management consists of five system management functions, sometimes called "the five smurfs:"

Rearrange their order, and you get a handy acronym to help you remember them: FCAPS (Fault, Configuration, Accounting, Performance, Security). At the CCNA level, we will be concerned primarily with fault, configuration, and security management.

How do these relate to the OSI model? First, remember that the OSI model is only a guide. Management was an annex to the original document.

Next, think of an OSI stack as a seven-layer luxury office building, which has a janitor on each floor and a building manager in the utility penthouse. The janitors, without special instructions, will routinely vacuum, mop, etc., on each floor. The building manager gives the janitors instructions through an intercom system separate from the tenants' telephones.

Standing instructions for the janitors are the standing instructions per floor. In OSI terms, this is layer management. Layer management functions are part of a layer and do not have a direct application above them, although they can be reconfigured. Routing protocols, ICMP error notification, etc., are examples of network layer management.

When the building manager changes a policy for one of the floors, she issues a system management command. System management actions do come from a central point, such as an operator console or network management workstation. There are several mechanisms for system management on your router.

At the CCNA level, the major system management actions come from console commands (local or remote), and file transfer. At higher levels of certification, you will need to understand protocols designed specifically for management, such as the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

Fault Management

It is sometimes said that networks run on smoke and mirrors, and, if you see the magic smoke pouring out of your router, you can safely assume that a fault exists. Most faults are harder to detect.

Your most basic tool in fault management is in your head. Think about the way the problem is showing itself. For example, assume you have two sites, each with two LANs and one WAN connection to the other site (somewhat like Figure 1). Traffic is being routed successfully between the LANs at each site, but no traffic is flowing between the sites. Just from a logical standpoint, where is the problem most likely to lie?

Figure 1.

Once you have decided where to look, you can start diagnosing. show commands are an excellent start. In this case, the problem would certainly appear to be in the WAN. Your first test would be to check your WAN interface.

If there are intermediate routers between you and the remote site, you would next check the routing table on each. Consider using the ping and traceroute tools discussed at the end of this paper.

Configuration Management

As we go through, we'll discuss configuration issues relating to each topic. Nothing happens on a router before it is configured, and there are several kinds of configuration, at different levels of granularity. Configuration pertaining to executables (i.e., the IOS image) is at the level of entire files. What we most often think of as "configuration" is the Cisco configuration language, which sets parameters, though configuration also includes prestored commands that you could execute at the EXEC prompt line.
