Event Management Services
Abstrakt / Utdrag
In a world of increasingly complex and distributed computer systems an effective Event Management Service (XEMS) is a key part of the necessary system management and administration infrastructure. The EMS must provide timely warning of impending problems, notify failing processes, identify problem areas in a system and possibly automatically fix them before service availability falls below acceptable levels. To achieve what is required, interoperability between systems in a distributed network is only one part of the solution; inter-comprehension of the key event data is also necessary. This Event Management Service (XEMS) specification satisfies all these requirements. It defines a programming interface which receives notifications in the form of events, and transports them reliably to applications. The Specification is in three parts: Part 1 describes the API including the model, architecture, data formats and interface definitions; Part 2 describes reference implementations for DCE and CORBA; Part 3 describes event structures for the basic event set.
