Abstract

The importance of network and distributed systems management to supply and maintain services required by users has led to a demand for management facilities. The successful implementation and interoperability of these facilities depends to a large extent on a precise, but implementation independent, specification of their behaviour. This paper examines the use of formal techniques to describe managed objects. We describe a formal specification of a scheduling architecture for the management of services in a distributed system.
