CATALINA : A Smart Application Control and Management


We are implementing a smart application control and management (CATALINA) that provides dynamically programmable control and management services to support the development and deployment of smart (intelligent) applications. The CATALINA environment consists of Application Management Editor (AME) and Management Computing System (MCS). The AME module provides the application develop ers with all the tools required to specify the appropriate control and management schemes to maintain any quality of service requirement or application attribute/functionality (e.g., performance, fault, security, etc.). The MCS provides the  core active management services to enable the efficient proactive management of  a wide range of network applications. The services offered by the MCS are implemented using mobile agents. Furthermore, each MCS service can be implemented using several techniques that can be selected dynamically by invoking the corresponding mobile agent template for the service implementation.
