Gluedomains is a prototype implementation of the concepts introduced
so far: deployment is being carried out by these days.
We envision a best effort oriented approach, where
theodolites run network monitoring tools.
Globus MDS is used to make network service
characteristics available to users (typically, grid aware applications or Grid
monitoring tools like GridICE).
The overall architecture is split in 4 modules (disregarding
the GlueDomains database: used to map services to domains and
to store theodolite descriptions;
the GlueDomains theodolite management: which controls the
activity of theodolite services;
the GMA plugin: which is in charge of transferring observations
from the monitoring tools to the GMA back end;
the GMA back-end: which submits the GMA plugin
output to the GMA repository.
