Abstract

Remos provides resource information to distributed applications. Its design goals of scalability, flexibility, and portability are achieved through an architecture that allows components to be positioned across the network, each collecting information about its local network. To collect information from different types of networks, Remos provides several Collectors that use different technologies, including SNMP and benchmarking. By matching the Collector to the particular network environment and by providing an architecture for distributing the output of these collectors across all querying environments, Remos collects appropriately detailed information at each site and distributes this information where needed in a scalable manner. Remos has been implemented and tested in a variety of networks and is in use in a number of different environments.
