Effective network monitoring is vital for the growing number of control and management applications typically found in present-day networks. Increasing link speeds and the diversity of monitoring applications' needs have exposed severe limitations of existing monitoring techniques. As a response, the EU IST SCAMPI project designs and implements a scalable and programmable architecture for monitoring multi-gigabit networks. The SCAMPI architecture has an expressive programming interface, uses intelligent hardware, provides user policy management and resource control, and achieves scalability through parallelism. This paper addresses the problems with current high-speed network monitoring and presents the system architecture and components of the SCAMPI platform.
