A Multi-agent System to Monitor SLA for Cloud Computing

Benjamin Gâteau

Abstract

More than a technological solution Cloud Computing is also an economical advantage and already play an important roles in the information technology’s area. Thereby and in order to ensure a QoS commitment between a provider and a customer, Service Level Agreements (SLA) describe a set of non-functional requirements of the service the customer is buying. In this paper, we describe how we can use Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) to manage SLA and we present the monitoring tool we develop with the SPADE framework.
