Abstract The MonALISA (Monitoring Agents in a Large Integrated Services Architecture) framework provides a set of distributed services for monitoring, control, management and global optimization for large scale distributed systems. It is based on an ensemble of autonomous, multi-threaded, agent-based subsystems which are registered as dynamic services. They can be automatically discovered and used by other services or clients. The distributed agents can collaborate and cooperate in performing a wide r... Title of program: MonALISA Catalogue Id: AEEZ_v1_0 Nature of problem To monitor and control distributed computing clusters and grids, the network infrastructure, the storage systems, and the applications used on such facilities. The monitoring information gathered is used for developing the required higher level services, the components that provide decision support and some degree of automated decisions and for maintaining and optimizing workflow in large scale distributed systems. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data AEEZ_v1_0; MonALISA; 10.1016/j.cpc.2009.08.003 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018)
