Abstract

Document-Based Integrated Management (DBIM) is a novel way of consolidating enterprise network and system man- agement. We present an approach to DBIM that utilizes the autonomic capabilities of a set of distributed Document Processing Units (DPU), which constitute a document pro- cessing plane within the enterprise network. Our approach is explained in detail using a scenario from the performance and fault management domain. We also explore the connec- tion of DBIM with current research topics in the autonomic systems �eld, and the relationships to other popular inte- grated management approaches, like Policy-Based Manage- ment (PBM), Active Networks, Agent-based Network Man- agement, or Web Service (WS) Management.
