The service-oriented architecture has come a long way in solving the problem of reusability of existing software resources. Grid applications today are composed of a large number of loosely coupled services. While this has opened up new avenues for building large, complex applications, it has made the management of the application components a nontrivial task. Use of services existing on different platforms, implemented in different languages and presence of variety of network constraints further complicates management. This paper investigates problems that emerge when there is a need to uniformly manage a set of distributed services. We present a scalable, fault-tolerant management framework. Our empirical evaluation shows that the architecture adds an acceptable number of additional resources for providing scalable, fault-tolerant management framework.
