Diagnosis functionality as a key component for automated Network Management (NM) systems allows rapid, machine-level interpretation of acquired data. In existing work, network diagnosis has focused on building “point solutions” using configuration and performance management, alarm, and topology information from one network. While the use of automated anomaly detection and diagnosis techniques within a single network improves operational efficiency, the knowledge learned by running these techniques across different networks that are managed by the same operator can be further maximized when that knowledge is shared. This paper presents a novel diagnosis cloud framework that enables the extraction and transfer of knowledge from one network to another. It also presents use cases and requirements. We present the implementation details of the diagnosis cloud framework for two specific types of models: topic models and Markov Logic Networks (MLNs). For each, we describe methods for assessing the quality of the local model, ranking models, adapting models to a new network, and performing detection and diagnosis. We performed […]
