Experience with High-Speed Automated Application-Identification for Network-Management


AtoZ, an automatic traffic organizer, provides control of how network-resources are used by applications. It does this by combining the high-speed packet processing of the NetFPGA with an efficient method for application-behavior labeling. AtoZ can control network resources by prohibiting certain applications and controlling the resources available to others. We discuss deployment experience and use real traffic to illustrate how such an architecture enables several distinct features: high accuracy, high throughput, minimal delay, and efficient packet labeling - all in a low cost, robust configuration that works alongside the enterprise access-router.
