Today’s IT environments are a complex conglomeration of tools, middleware, and protocols. Even to accomplish the most basic tasks, Systems Administrators must learn specialized tools, specific languages and terms for each management domain (e.g. storage, operations). Keeping these environment running 24 x 7 is an almost Herculean task. The COSMOS project is focused demonstrating how standards can play a key role in simplifying the management environment. This long talk will describe how COSMOS is developing reference implementations of emerging management standards and applying existing implementations to construct an exemplary, standards-based systems management application. Attendees of this long talk will gain a firm understanding of the Configuration Management Database federation (CMDBf), Service Modeling Language (SML), Solution Deployment Descriptor (SDD), and Web Services Distributed Management (WSDM) specification. The talk will describe how these standards are applied to a basic management scenario that includes resource discovery, configuration management queries, deployment and monitoring.
