Abstract

To understand the long-term dynamics of networks engineers and network scientists collect tremendous amount of data and distribute them across many different data warehouses. In EU FP7 OpenLab project we developed the nmVO, which helps handling distinct data sources together in a common way efficiently. It also supports data collecting systems with a permanent data storage, such as SONoMA, and provides a public front-end to run measurements and access data, called GrayWulf. Furthermore, the on-line analysis of data, yielding the behavior and the structure of the Internet is convenient by using server side scientific functionalities.
