It¡¦s the age of network now. More and more people use the network and network management becomes important. The ISO sets the network management model: accounting management, configuration management, performance management, fault management and security management. Network topology plays an important role of them. Network topology can help network manager to manage network devices efficiently and to handle some problems. So, topology discovery is an important technology that can help us to find out the network topology.
Although there are many network management tools having topology discovery function, they are commercial secret and usually need pay. Because of network topology is important of network management and commercial network management software isn¡¦t free, we want to study topology discovery to find the suitable algorithm of topology discovery which can find out network layer topology and data link layer topology. Then we will modify the algorithm to help us to implement the system of topology discovery. This system needs minor factors and less influence on network. It can discover topology efficiently.
