Presents design principles for the development of cooperative management algorithms
The network management community has been pushed towards the design of alternative management approaches able to support heterogeneity, scalability, reliability, and minor human intervention. The employment of self-* properties and Peer-To-Peer (P2P) are seen as promising alternatives, able to provide the sophisticated solutions required.
Despite being developed in parallel, and with minor direct connections perceived between them, self-* properties and P2P can be used concurrently. In Self-* and P2P for Network Management: Design Principles and Case Studies, the authors explore the issues behind the joint use of self-* properties and P2P, and present:
a survey relating autonomic computing and self-* properties, P2P, and network and service management;
the design of solutions that explore parallel and cooperative behavior of management peers;
the change in angle of network management solution development from APIs, protocols, architectures, and frameworks to the design of management algorithms.
