  • Modeling IT operations to derive provider-accepted management tools

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):843 - 856
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (772 KB)

    In this paper a process-oriented approach to derive requirements on IT management tools is presented. The starting point is given by the processes that have to be carried out to run a distributed system. The better a management tool supports these processes the more useful it is from the viewpoint of the provider. Hence, the more accepted the tool is by the operators doing their work in the IT org...

    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (852 KB)

    We propose a network management and control architecture that is able to dynamically load application-specific code, which in turn is able to control resources at a very low level. Recognising the existing diversity of network management and control architectures, we then address the problem of interoperability between control architecture domains. Given such interoperability, we show how clients ... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (596 KB)

    Network monitoring is one of the most significant functions in network management to understand the state of a network in real-time. In network management, such as SNMP (simple network management protocol), polling is used for this purpose. If the time interval for two consecutive polling requests is too long, then we cannot understand the state of the network in real-time. Conversely, if it is to... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (652 KB)

    To manage distributed applications, we need to accurately monitor end-user service levels. There are two key challenges in monitoring end-user service levels: expressiveness and scalability. There is a big semantic gap between the metrics that administrators want to monitor and the metrics offered by commercial measurement systems. Moreover, it is hard to apply the same kind of metrics to differen... View full abstract»
