Nowadays, context management solutions in ambient networks are well-known. However, with the IoT paradigm, ambient information is not anymore the only source of context. Context management solutions able to address multiple network scales ranging from ambient networks to the Internet of Things (IoT) are required. We present the INCOME project whose goal is(More)
Cooperative Management has appeared as a promising paradigm on which Network and System Management (NSM) solutions should be partially or entirely based. This paper proposes a conceptual framework to obtain, from any CIM schemas, NSM frame-based ontologies which can then be used in cooperative management solutions. 1. INTRODUCTION From a technological(More)
The high complexity of existing networks and services has led to the need to increase the autonomy of management solutions. This article presents a generic agent-based framework as a first step towards the conception of self-managed systems. This conceptual framework consists of groups of management agents coupled with managed resources and endowed with(More)
Integrated management should cope with numerous, heterogeneous and complex systems. In this context, the monitoring activity should be sensitive and efficiently reactive to both variations of management applications requirements and environmental constraints. This paper introduces concepts, definitions, information models and algorithms to manage monitoring(More)
Regardless of the management functional domains, autonomous reconfiguration activities are the principal means through which self-management is carried out. However, the presence of dynamic reconfiguration should not endanger the system's operation, otherwise it would nullify the underlying expected benefits. Hence, management systems should include a(More)
Software defined networking (SDN) approaches rely on control languages to programmatically express the desired network behavior. Several SDN control languages use network virtualization to abstract the complex and dynamic nature of the physical infrastructure. However, almost all these languages use the same network abstraction model, which we believe is(More)
Runtime configuration validation is a critical requirement if we are to build reliable self-adaptive management systems. This paper presents a generic framework that includes a runtime configuration checker built upon a high-level language dedicated to the specification of configurations and validity constraints. In addition, we describe a methodology for(More)
