Traditionally, system and network management software is tightly tied with the managed IT resources through their specific manageability interfaces. Toloose this tie, applying Web services technology in system and net work manage field is a reasonable way.In this paper, we propose a novel Web services-based distributed system and network management middleware model: WSDSNM3. This model utilizes Web service technologies in system and network management. We describe this middleware model architecture. Because Web service distributed management specification (WSDM), as an initiative of OASIS organization, helps to build the Web Services based manageability interfaces of IT resources, we proposed a novel WSDM-based management middleware model, including programming model for WSDM-based management middleware layer, protocol hierarchy of A WSDM-based management middleware layer. Furthermore, we discuss MUSEJMX based system management implementation scheme - WSDSNM3-platform, including manager layer, WSDM-gateway layer, and agent layer, and then analyze the experiment results. At last, from our research experiences and related survey, we analyze the prospective research direction and challenges in this field.
