TIPC


Introduction

TIPC is a LAN protocol, originally designed by Jon Maloy at Ericsson. Its purpose is to provide an efficient, transparent, and scalable communication mechanism for a wide range of possible cluster configurations. It has been in the linux kernel since 2.6.16.
http://tipc.sf.net is the main TIPC site.

networkmanager

NetworkManager is designed to be fully automatic and "Just Work" without intervention, but friendly desktop applications allow users to control the state of the network if they desire. NetworkManager keeps a list of all available network devices, and updates that list when you insert or remove new network cards, dock your laptop, etc. Using this list, NetworkManager determines the best device to use for the computer's network connection.

bonding

The Linux bonding driver provides a method for aggregating
multiple network interfaces into a single logical
bonded interface.
The behavior of the bonded interfaces depends upon the mode; generally
speaking, modes provide either hot standby or load balancing services.
Additionally, link integrity monitoring may be performed.

applications

This page summarizes the traffic patterns of applications.

traceroute

overview

Traceroute is a system administrators utility to trace the route IP packets take from a source system to some destination system.

There are several implementations of this tool. Most distributions include the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Network Research Group version. There is two implementations written especially for LiNUX, one by Olaf Kirch and other one by Dmitry Butskoy.
