C3 VANNCM, NETWORK CONTROL MANAGER

C3.1 NCM OVERVIEW
VANNCM. The Network Control Manager is responsible for all session level functions (OSI Layer 5) and also certain manage-Lent application functions (Layer 7). NCM supports interaction between cooperating presentation entities with central responsi¬bility for configuring System parameters, administering network control, monitoring facilities utilization, collecting statis¬tics, and generating reports.

NCM establishes and maintains an end-to-end interconnection between a user terminal and a specific class of services by initiating an active session and managing it. When GCM Traf¬fic Controller receives a message from a user not yet register¬ed in its GCM USER tables, the message is assumed to he a ses-sion-initiation request and is forwarded to NCM Session Manager which analyzes the messages for transport control data, verifies user authorization, logs the registered user into VANSYS, and allocates him session bandwidth.

The address of the user's network access node is checked against the terminal inventory directory to determine access procedures. this user network access node can be a general user facility requiring identification through a logon procedure or a public-access touch terminal access mode requiring no additional identification.

C3 VANNCM, NETWORK CONTROL MANAGERC3.1 NCM OVERVIEWVANNCM. The Network Control Manager is responsible for all session level functions (OSI Layer 5)and also certain manage-Lent application functions (Layer 7). NCM supports interaction betweencooperating presentation entities with central responsibility for configuring System parameters,administering network control, monitoring facilities utilization, collecting statistics, and generating reports.NCM establishes and maintains an end-to-end interconnection between a user terminal and a specificclass of services by initiating an active session and managing it. When GCM Traffic Controller receives amessage from a user not yet registered in its GCM USER tables, the message is assumed to he a ses-sion-initiation request and is forwarded to NCM Session Manager which analyzes the messages fortransport control data, verifies user authorization, logs the registered user into VANSYS, and allocates himsession bandwidth.The address of the user's network access node is checked against the terminal inventory directory todetermine access procedures. this user network access node can be a general user facility requiringidentification through a logon procedure or a public-access touch terminal access mode requiring noadditional identification.After identification NCM references its NCM USER tables for user terminal requirements and completeidentification and system customization records. Terminal requirements are referenced to customize thenetwork connection by dispatching network configuration packets to GCM Traffic Controller when requiredand to determine what to downline load into the DTE to provide proper remote configuration.The user's system customization records specify all service options available to him. When the properprocessing environment is determined the user is transferred into that environment. if all optionsavailable to the user are in DCM, for example, he is routed through GCM directly to a port class dedicatedto servicing DCM, however, if he has authorized options which would place him in one of severalprocessing environments, menus are generated to present options until the proper processorenvironment is determined.After the user and his requested services are properly identified and he is logged into the SystemGCM User tables are updated. These GCM User tables provide mapping between the user sessionnumber and his network access node address. Messages also are dispatched to DCM to update DCMUser tables and to provide
,
complete identification and service customization records. As with GCM Usertables DCM User tables contain only DCM pertinent information.After this point in the session, NCM is passive except for interaction with GCM, from which it requestssession traffic characteristics, and except in response to a presentation-level remote-job entry call whichrequires local or remote job-spawning procedure.C3.1b ProtocolSession-level protocols are available from the ISO in draft proposal form and are expected to be availablein draft inter-national proposal form in early 1984. Draft Proposals 8326 and 8327 detail the session-levelservice definition and session-level protocol definition respectively. The ISO has not yet standardizedSystem management protocols and no working documents are yet available from its committees.VANNCM design will closely follow such protocol and service definitions when available.C3.2 NCN SUBSYSTEMS & MODULESNCM operates via three subsystems 1) System Manager which controls VANSYS and its initialization, 2)
 
Session Manager which provides session level functionality, and 3) Audit Collector-Processor whichcentrally controls VANSYS statistical collection and processing.C3.2a SYSTEM MANAGER SUBSYSTEMNCM System Manager operates via five management application modules: 1) System Initializer tocentrally initialize VANSYS, Parameter Manager which controls various system parameters, 2) PortManager which centrally manages port configuration for the primary systems, 4) Database Manager whichcentrally controls DCM databases, and 5) User ID Manager which provides access security andcustomized services.C3.2a1 System Initializer ModuleNCM System Initializer centrally initializes the entire VANSYS image. It is able to bootstrap itself, downlineload system images into the GCM and DCM processors, initialize these two peer primary systems, andsynchronize operations between itself, GCM, and DCM to produce a single logical system. Both hot andcold starts are serviced.C3.2a2 Parameter Manager ModuleNCMParameterManagersetssystemparametersfortime,shadow status,andswitchesbetweenprimaryandsecondarysystemcomponents using these self-explanatory commands: Set System Time, SetSystemtoHalt,SetNCMShadowDown,ResetNCMShadow,SetGCMShadowDown,ResetGCMShadow.SetDCMShadowDown, Reset DCMShadow,SwitchtoMain NCM,SwitchtoBackupNCM,SwitchtoMain GCM, Switch toBackup GCM, Switch to Main DCM, Switch to Backup DCM.This module also catalogues and addresses System pages which are stored on DCM disk andcached in NCM memory; HELP, Hard Hat, Herald, and main menu pages.
