A fast-growing number of high-layer protocols, services and networked applications has been run over computer networks and needs to be managed. A unified, decentralized framework should be used to scale for the current large and complex computing environments. Besides, the management environment should be quickly and easily adaptable to monitor dynamic scenarios. This paper presents the trace management platform, an extension of the SNMP infrastructure based on the IETF Script MIB to support integrated, distributed and flexible management of high-layer protocols, services and networked applications.
