Unifying WBEM and Móbile Agents Approaches for Systems Management

Marco Antonio C. SimõesAndré Luis de M. Santos

Systems Management (SM) must be able to manage all aspects of computers systems, from physical details of hardware and communication to applications, including communication protocols and middleware. To meet these needs, several approaches based on intelligent mobile agents have been proposed. The rapid evolution of computer systems provides an additional issue for SM systems: the capability to support new types of managed objects in a flexible and extensible way. To match this need, IT industry has provided a new initiative, WBEM (Web-Based Enterprise Management). In this work, we validate the application of SM architectures based on intelligent mobile agents with standards proposed by the WBEM initiative. To reach this goal, we developed a framework to support intelligent mobile agents capable of accessing management information according to WBEM standards.
