Identifying limits of scalability in distributed, heterogeneous, layer based monitoring concepts like slate

Research output: Contribution to journalResearch articleContributedpeer-review


In this paper we present the concept of a scalable job centric monitoring infrastructure. The overall performance of this distributed, layer based architecture
called SLAte can be increased by installing additional servers to adapt to the
demands of the monitored resources and users. Another important aspect is to
offer a uniform global view on all data which are stored distributed to provide
an easy access for users or visualisation tools. Additionally we discus the impact
of these uniform access layer on scalability.
