AQuSerM: Advances in Quality of Service Management
EDOC 2009 workshop, 31 August - 4 September 2009, Auckland, New Zealand

http://nicta.com.au/research/projects/egov/aquserm09

Papers are solicited for the fourth AQuserM@EDOC event. The workshop
concerns advances in QoS-oriented techniques and tools for managing
enterprise architectures, encompassing approaches to monitoring,
diagnostics, runtime analysis and prediction and adaptation. Model-
driven and service-oriented approaches are a special focus of the
workshop.

Workshop Goals

Service Level Management (SLM) is the process of managing the Quality
of Service (QoS) demanded by clients and offered by providers. In the
past, SLM approaches have focused on service contract definition,
monitoring and reporting and have typically been handled by enterprise
system management toolssuch as Microsoft's SMS, CA's Unicenter and
Empirix's OneSight.

However, traditional approaches are inadequate when dealing with
complex service-oriented architectures. Service-oriented architectures
are compositional, dynamic and often distributed over the internet.
For such architectures, SLM becomes a difficult problem that can no
longer be handled by traditional monitoring tools. This is because of
the dynamic, flexible, compositional and global natures of SOAs.

This workshop will be concerned with the issues that are important to
modern QoS management: the monitoring of widely distributed
components, dynamic adaptation strategies and the necessity for more
sophisticated prediction and diagnostic analysis techniques. Model-
driven approaches to these issues will be a special focus of the
workshop.

The workshop shall bring together researchers from academia and
industry interested in cutting edge formal and model-based approaches
as well as utilizing current standards and middleware to meet the
challenges of SLM for the21st century.

Themes

The main theme of the workshop will be QoS-oriented techniques and
tools for managing modern enterprise architectures, encompassing
approaches to monitoring, diagnostics, runtime analysis, behaviour
prediction, adaptation strategies and the interrelation of these
issues within SLM.

Special focus will be given to model-driven approaches. The
development of standards such as the ISO/IEC QoS Framework, the RM-ODP
and the UML Profilefor QoS are intended to form the basis for the
design and implementation of QoS management in networked enterprise
architectures. A current open question is how best to use these
standards within the Model Driven Architecture (MDA) refinement
strategy for software development. For example, some authors are
advocating the use of MDA to generate platform-specific monitorable
implementations from QoS requirements specified in a platform-
independentmetamodel.

Topics include, but are not limited to,

QoS support for common enterprise middleware (such as CORBA, J2EE
and .NET)
Management issues for domain-specific architectures (such as process
control architectures built using OPC)
Managing complex systems using current industrial monitoring
infrastructures and standards (e.g., Microsoft's WMI and the DMTF's
CIM standard)
Component-based approaches to QoS management
Formal methods to support SLM
Mathematical models for system diagnostics
Industrial SLM case studies
Model-driven approaches to monitoring, diagnostics, prediction and
adaptation
Unifying management frameworks
