Networked Systems: Introducing Network Management Models into ODP
The complexity of networked systems calls for their management. The ODP framework based on viewpoints provides powerful concepts to support the specification and design of distributed systems, but without fully considering their management. In order for ODP to avoid re-inventing the wheel with regard to management, the results of network management standards that we have structured in terms of models should be integrated in the ODP framework. Therefore, this paper defines the mapping between the network management models and the ODP viewpoints. Emphasis lies on the realization of a connection management function using the proposed method.
