Networks grow in scale and become more complex and heterogeneous as well. A lot of research effort is focused on the topic of network management. This is because nowadays a network management system is a vital component of any network installation. In this paper, we propose an extended network management information model that includes the time dimension. This view leads us to adopt a temporal data model as the underlying information model. Moreover, the services provided by this model, as well
more » ... as the architecture supporting them, are presented. In addition to that, we have implemented a prototype incorporating the proposed network management view. The description of the prototype is also presented in this paper. ᭧ 1997 Elsevier Science B.V.
