Abstract

Network mining for managing a broadband network M. chartrand' & J. ~ohnson~ 1 Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, Luurentian University, Canada 2 Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, Laurentian University, Canada Abstract By "Network Mining" we mean Data Mining of data available within a telecommunications network environment. Real world data obtained from the local Cable Internet provider are analysed to find rules to help better manage the network. This large dataset helps validate the use of data mining techniques for rule generation. Of the rules generated, to be passed on to the network managers, some proved to be interesting. 1 Introduction Data mining is a step within Knowledge Discovery in Databases. KDD will be used to permit the network system to provide the human system administrator with information, to permit him or her to more effectively manage the system. Our goal is to use data available from the system and get some sense of it; to show that, from a h
