Software-Defined Networking (SDN) technologies offer the possibility to automatically and frequently reconfigure the network resources by enabling simple and flexible network programmability. One of the key challenges to address when developing a new SDN-based solution is the design of a monitoring framework that can provide frequent and consistent updates to heterogeneous management applications. To cope with the requirements of large-scale networks (i.e. large number of geographically

The research will focus on the design of monitoring entities for the collection and processing of information at different network locations and will investigate how these can efficiently share their knowledge in a distributed management environment.
