The Softwarised Network Data Zoo

21 Oct 2019  ·  Manuel Peuster, Stefan Schneider, Holger Karl ·

More and more management and orchestration approaches for (software) networks are based on machine learning paradigms and solutions. These approaches depend not only on their program code to operate properly, but also require enough input data to train their internal models. However, such training data is barely available for the software networking domain and most presented solutions rely on their own, sometimes not even published, data sets. This makes it hard, or even infeasible, to reproduce and compare many of the existing solutions. As a result, it ultimately slows down the adoption of machine learning approaches in softwarised networks. To this end, we introduce the "softwarised network data zoo" (SNDZoo), an open collection of software networking data sets aiming to streamline and ease machine learning research in the software networking domain. We present a general methodology to collect, archive, and publish those data sets for use by other researches and, as an example, eight initial data sets, focusing on the performance of virtualised network functions.
