these network tools are a family of modules intended for pipeline use.
a typical pipeline might look like this:
converter to canonical ndt format ->
geographical resolver / topological layout ->
grouping and coloring filters ->
geometric constructors ->
2D or 3D visualization engine
a set of tools that either filter streams in ndt format or
translate to and from foreign formats into ndt format, a simple
optional property based ascii format for representation of network
data. (mostly perl, the set of tools written by Tamara Munzner.)
a few sample datasets for use with the toolkit: the tunnel
structure of the mbone on 2/12/96, 6/15/96, and 7/30/96.
downloaded from the former mwatch website (now defunct)
map.special, some auxilliary tunnel structure data that won't be in
the dataset collated by mwatch.
a set of tools that either filter streams in ntformat or translate to
and from foreign formats into ndt format, a simple optional property
based ascii format for representation of network data. (mostly C, the set of
tools written by Eric Hoffman.)
a graph placement program written at the University of Karlsruhe
under the direction of Arne Frick. Although the code itself is
unattributed, it seems to have been written by an Andreas Ludwig. the
is available here. the only change made was to preserve node tags
so that they could be correlated with the original nodes.
all toolkit modules in a single package, for convenience
