Description In Proc. International Workshop on Distributed Dynamic Multiservice Architecture, in conjunction with IEEE International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS'2001
The size of applications is becoming greater every day. Software components enable developers for easily building large applications with basic reusable parts. However, there is a need for a system support to allow these applications to scale to many users and to large networks. Current methods for load balancing cannot be applied, since they are mostly designed for local area networks and the monitoring tools are not sufficient. To allow efficient load balancing, we first have to consider the architecture of the monitoring infrastructure. In this paper we present a way to build a scalable monitoring platform. By using information provided by this platform, it's possible to build policies for helping system administrators in the management of complex tasks. Using application descriptions, these policies take into account the global architecture and drive reconfigurations using the monitoring data.
