Abstract : Mobile ad-hoc networks are networks spontaneously deployed from a set of mobile devices without requiring any fixed infrastructures. The increasing interest in this technology raises new research challenges towards providing them a management framework. Network users expect a service level as close as in regular fixed networks. A primary expectation is the capability to communicate (end-to-end) with the other network users. We present in this paper a framework for monitoring and optimizing this capability in mobile ad-hoc networks. Our normalized metric, called end-to-end connectivity degree, characterizes the number of nodes, that a node can reach in the entire network. We describe a management architecture to monitor this metric together with the network density, and illustrate how routing configuration can be performed to optimize it.
