Abstract
The dissemination of information in wireless networks is a fundamental aspect in several network processes, such as routing, monitoring and management. Nowadays, most of the techniques for dissemination of management information adopt controlled flooding approaches, which usually impairs the network performance. In this sense, the optimization of the dissemination of management information for dense wireless scenarios remains a relevant research challenge. In this paper, it is presented and analyzed the performance of the Neighbors Eyesight Direction (NED) dissemination against to OSPF, uncontrolled flooding and Gossip approaches in wired and large network scenarios. NED is able to work on wired and dense wireless scenarios, showing to be more efficient than the baseline approaches. With lower dissemination cost and lesser recursive cycles, NED proved to be scalable to disseminate management information for scenarios with a large number of devices.
