The interfaces between the products
In order to ensure product interoperability, we have to
In our architecture we distinguish three interfaces:
- the front end API of the interface library, which
exports functions for the tool-transparent access to the
- the back end API of the interface library, which
exports functions for the tool-dependant access to the measures;
- the registration protocol, which describes the
interaction between the monitoring tool and the LDAP directory, in
order to register the availability of measures.
Each of the three interface has the
at one side: therefore this product may be the place where
standards are enforced.
