Supporting service management data composition in grid environments
Service management issues commonly encountered in IT infrastructures appear greatly amplified when observed in grid environments. Specifically, the creation of views on services -- grid services as well as other services provided by infrastructures supporting the grid -- becomes more difficult. In this paper we suggest the application of a generic service monitoring architecture to the grid environment. For this purpose, the Relational Grid Monitoring Architecture (R-GMA) is employed as a means of extracting data relevant to the grid. The aggregation of this data into a service view is facilitated by the composition layers of the architecture.
