LISP-Views: Monitoring LISP at Large Scale

The Locator/Identifier Separation Protocol (LISP) separates classical IP addresses into two categories: one for identifying terminals, the other for routing. To associate identifiers and locators LISP needs a specific mechanism, called mapping system. This technology is still at an early stage but two experimental platforms have already been deployed in the Internet: LISP Beta Network and LISP-Lab. However, only the LISP Beta Network is monitored with LISPmon that partially monitors the mapping system once a day. To accompany the growth of LISP, a dynamic and complete monitoring system is required. Therefore, we propose LISP-Views, a dynamic versatile large scale LISP monitoring architecture. LISP-Views allows to automatically conduct comprehensive and objective measurements. After running LISP-Views in the wild for several months and comparing the monitoring results with LISPmon, we confirm that LISP-Views provides more detailed and accurate information. We observe the different behaviours between every network entity within mapping system, and also explore the current LISP performance for further improvements.
