An NFS Configuration Management System and its Underlying Object-Oriented Model

Fabio Q. B. da Silva, Juliana Silva da Cunha, Danielle M. Franklin, Luciana S. Varejão, and Rosalie Belian - Federal University of Pernambuco


This paper describes an NFS configuration and management system for large and heterogeneous computer environments. It also shows how this system can be extended to address other services in the network. The solution is composed of a process that describes service configuration and management life-cycle, a modular architecture and an objected oriented model. The system supports multiple features, including: automatic host and service installation, service dependency inference and analysis, performance analysis, configuration optimization as well as service functioning monitoring and problem correction.
