Abstract
Abstract: Traditional network monitoring involving packet capturing or flow sampling has many challenges such as scalability, accuracy and availability of processing resource when networks become large-scale, high-speed and heterogeneous. SDN is a promising approach to address these challenges, but each SDN switch has it's own capacity limitation, such as it's cache memory called TCAM, and thus it needs coordination of resources with other network nodes to monitor the network in a scalable manner. liteFlow introduces an ...
