Abstract/Description: We present two tools that utilize the end-to-end approach for topology discovery for Ethernet switched LANs. Unlike existing Ethernet topology discovery methods that rely on Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) queries to obtain topology information, our tools infer topology based on end-to-end message exchanges. This method allows our tools to work on Ethernet switched LANs that use managed and/or unmanaged Ethernet switches without requiring any special privileges. We discuss the key concepts, the algorithms used, and report the evaluation for each tool.
