Abstract:We present an end-user’s perspective on managing Internet applications. The end-user’s perspective can: (1) guide the definition of metrics for which management data must be collected, (2) limit the amount of data collected for end-to-end management of applications, and (3) enable management by end-users themselves. To explore concepts of management from an end-user’s perspective, we have prototyped a tool, Amadeus, that enables management by end-users. Amadeus tracks end-user actions and correlates them with performance and business metrics. We describe the motivation and architecture for Amadeus. Two salient points about the architecture are: (1) data collection is triggered by end-user’s interactions with applications (as opposed to a periodic polling scheme), and (2) application monitoring does not require source code access to applications. We illustrate our approach using the Lotus Notes email application.
