INSTANT MANAGEMENT INFRASTRUCTURE - Through Network Management Support Systems and Software Agents Coordination

Abstract

Enterprises need to automate manual and routine aspects of IT infrastructure management. In this paper a new concept that integrates different autonomous and management level applications through Instant Messaging protocol (XMPP) is introduced. This is achieved by means of a common management information model implemented in LDAP. A content language implemented in XML is also described, allowing autonomous application integration to carry out management tasks dynamically.
