Accessing ANSA Objects from OSI Network Management
OSI network management provides a general framework for the management of OSI systems, and by extension of any distributed system. However, it is not yet possible to tell to what extent the tools developed for network management will be applicable to distributed systems management. This paper assumes that network managers will want to have some control of the distributed infrastructure and applications. It examines how access to some of the ANSA management interfaces can be given to OSI network managers. In order to do this, it compares the OSI network management model with the ANSA object model.
