WebDMF is a Web-based Framework for the Management of Distributed services. It is based on the Web-based Enterprise Management (WBEM) standards family and introduces a middleware layer of entities called "Representatives". Details related to the managed application are detached from the representative logic, making the framework suitable for a variety of services. WebDMF can be integrated with existing WBEM infrastructures and is complementary to web service-based management efforts. This paper describes how the framework can be used to manage grids without modifications to existing installations. It compares the proposed solution with other research initiatives. Experiments on an emulated network topology indicate its viability.
