Dr. Theodore Johnson AT&T Labs FRIDAY, Nov. 17, 2008, 10am FAB 86-01


Data stream systems (DSMSs) have matured to the point that they can be used in a large-scale industrial setting. In this talk, I will discuss how a combination of a DSMS (the GS monitor) and a streaming warehouse (DataDepot) combine to enable very large scale network monitoring in a tier-1 Internet Service Provider. The talk will emphasize the scaling challenges we faced and how they were overcome. Biography
