Abstract
The successful deployment of next-generation distributed multimedia systems is signi -
cantly dependent on the e cient management support that improves the performance and
the reliability of such applications at run-time. In this paper, we describe an active man-
agement framework based on programmable monitoring agents and event- lter-action re-
cursive model. Active management enables users to de ne recon gurable and self-directed
monitoring tasks that can be automatically customized at run-time in order to track the
system behavior. Using this active management framework, the monitoring agents can be
programmed to modify their monitoring tasks dynamically based on observed events infor-
mation, and initiate the appropriate management actions accordingly. This paper also em-
phasizes the importance of active management for supporting a scalable, highly-responsive
and non-intrusive distributed management infrastructure. The presented framework, which
