Network Management: Principles and Practice provides a balance of theoretical backgrounds and practical aspects of network management. Unlike other books that talk only about specific network technologies, Mani Subramanian lays the foundation for network management by presenting the background, the technologies, and the tools that all network managers simply must know. He does this by breaking the book down into three parts:
1. Data Communications and Network Management Overview.
Analogy of Telephone Network Management.
Data (Computer) and Telecommunication Network.
Distributed Computing Environment.
TCP / IP-Based Networks: Internet and Intranet.
Communications Protocols and Standards.
Protocol Layers and Services.
Case Histories on Networking and Management.
Case History 1: Importance of Topology (“Case of the Footprint”).
Case History 2: Filtering does not reduce load on node.
Some Common Network Problems.
Challenge of Information Technology Managers.

Network management is a large area. A thorough understanding of the topic requires: 1. a knowledge of different kinds of networking technologies (including architecture, protocols, and physics), 2. mature and evolving standards for each technology, and finally 3. practices for managing each kind of technology. I liked this book because it covered each area in a good amount of detail. It is quite thorough, and therefore not an 'easy read.' It should be a good book for a college-level class or as a general reference book.
