Trustworthy Detection and Arbitration of SLA Violations in the Cloud

  title={Trustworthy Detection and Arbitration of SLA Violations in the Cloud},
  author={Christian Schubert and Michael Borkowski and Stefan Schulte},
In cloud computing, detecting violations of Service Level Agreements (SLAs) is possible by measuring certain metrics, which can be done by both the provider and the consumer of a service. However, both parties have contradicting interests with regards to these measurements, which makes it difficult to reach consensus about whether SLA violations have occurred.

A Framework for Blockchain Interoperability and Runtime Selection

A framework is proposed that monitors several blockchains, allows the user to define functional and non-functional requirements, determines the most appropriate blockchain, and enables the switchover to that chain at runtime, and shows that switching to another blockchain can save cost and enable users to benefit from better performance and a higher level of trust.



Cloud SLAs: present and future

This study indicates that none of the surveyed cloud providers offer any performance guarantees for compute services and leave SLA violation detection to the customer, and provides guidance on how SLAs should be defined for future cloud services.

MonSLAR is presented, a User-centric middleware for Monitoring SLA for Restful services in SaaS cloud computing environments that uses a distributed architecture that allows SLA parameters and the monitored data to be embedded in the requests and responses of the REST protocol.

SLAM: SLA Monitoring Framework for Federated Cloud Services

SLAM, a customizable platform-independent SLA monitoring framework for federated cloud services, supports monitoring of distributed nodes and hosts using an agent-based model and proposes a service benchmarking approach that can compare similar services offered by different providers without deploying monitoring agents on the providers' sites.

CASViD: Application Level Monitoring for SLA Violation Detection in Clouds

An application monitoring architecture named CASViD, which stands for Cloud Application SLA Violation Detection architecture, which monitors and detects SLA violations at the application layer, and includes tools for resource allocation, scheduling, and deployment.

Comprehensive QoS monitoring of Web services and event-based SLA violation detection

This paper presents a framework that builds on event processing to inform interested subscribers of current QoS values and possible violations of Service Level Agreements and describes the QoS monitoring approach in detail, how it was integrated into the VRESCo service runtime environment, and evaluate the accuracy of the presented monitoring techniques.

M4Cloud - Generic Application Level Monitoring for Resource-shared Cloud Environments

A novel approach for classifying and monitoring application level metrics in a resource-shared Cloud environment is introduced and the design and implementation of the generic application level monitoring system is presented.

The NIST Definition of Cloud Computing

This cloud model promotes availability and is composed of five essential characteristics, three service models, and four deployment models.

Towards a Trusted third party based on Multi-agent systems for automatic control of the quality of service contract in the Cloud Computing

A Trusted third party (TTP) based on Multi-agent systems in order to control the quality of service contract and guarantee transparency and symmetry with respect to the SLA contract between prospective signatories is introduced.

VieSLAF Framework: Enabling Adaptive and Versatile SLA-Management

VieSLAF is presented, a novel framework for the specification and management of SLA mappings that may specify, manage, and apply SLA mapping bridging the gap between non-matching SLA templates.

Low level Metrics to High level SLAs - LoM2HiS framework: Bridging the gap between monitored metrics and SLA parameters in cloud environments

The LoM2HiS framework detects future SLA violation threats and can notify the enactor component to act so as to avert the threats, and is embedded into FoSII infrastructure, which facilitates autonomic SLA management and enforcement.
