Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Contribution (Conference Proceeding)


This paper presents WebDMF, a Web-based Framework for the Management of Distributed services. It is based on the Web-based Enterprise Management (WBEM) family of standards and introduces a middleware layer of entities called "Representatives". WebDMF can be integrated with existing WBEM infrastructures and is not limited to monitoring. On the contrary, it is capable of actively modifying the run-time parameters of the managed application. Its design is abstract and suitable for a variety of distributed services, such as grids and content delivery networks. The paper includes a discussion on WebDMF's design, implementation and advantages. We also present experiments on an emulated network topology as an indication of the framework's viability.
