Abstract

"Continual Validation of distributed software systems can facilitate their development and evolution and engender user trust. We present a monitoring architecture that is being developed collaboratively under DARPA's Dynamic Assembly for System Adaptability, Dependability, and Assurance program. The monitoring system includes a probing infrastructure that is injected into or wrapped around a target software system. Probes deliver events of interest to be processed by a monitoring infrastructure that consists of gauges for delivering information to system administrators. This thesis presents a classification of existing probing technologies and contains a full implementation of a probing infrastructure in Java."
