Service Infrastructure

The client will usually be the end-user interested in the state of a resource, set of resources or their currently executing job. The provider will be the provider of the Grid infrastructure. A third-party could be involved in storing events of consumers, or as a schema repository where event schema, or defined event types, are held for reference. [Tierney, 2002], [Zanikolas, 2004]

Monitoring perspective reflects the objectives of a stakeholder that performs the monitoring activity. Typically, the following perspectives are considered [CD-JRA-1.2.2], [Ghezzi & Guinea, 2007]:
  • client (requester) perspective requires that the service should deliver what it promised and should match the expectations of the requester.
  • provider perspective aims to monitor of the quality of delivered service and to drive possible run-time optimizations.
  • third-party perspective requires that the monitoring is performed by a third-party component, which aggregates and provides an access to the monitoring data. This approach is adopted when, e.g., the monitoring information comes from different sources and sites, when the client-side measurements are not possible or are not adequate with respect to the provider-side.

Perspective: Perspective in theory of  cognition is the choice of a  context or a  reference (or the result of this choice) from which to  sense categorize measure or codify  experience, cohesively forming a coherent  belief, typically for comparing with another. [Wikipedia]
