Rodrigo Nebel, "Passives Monitoring in Sensornetzen," Master's Thesis, Department of Computer Science, Friedrich–Alexander University of Erlangen–Nuremberg (FAU), February 2007. (Advisor: Falko Dressler)


In this thesis, I present 'pimoto', a concept for passive monitoring of wireless sensor networks (WSN) and its implementation for an architecture consisting of sensornodes type 'btnode' [5]. 'pimoto' can be used in research as well as in teaching. It simplifies debugging and the analysis of routing protocols. It also allows the visualisation of communication among computer systems for education. For this purpose, the developed monitoring tool sniffers the traffic of the WSN passively and sends it to an external entity for analysis. A hierarchical structure of the components of this monitoring tool permits passive monitoring of distributed so-called 'monitor-islands' as well as a central analysis of all the sniffed traffic in the WSNs on a graphical user interface. On the basis of four final experiments I demonstrate the functionality of 'pimoto' and I present the procedure of data evaluation.
