Abstract. Although a number of solutions exist for subtasks of application de­
ployment and monitoring in large­scale, distributed environments, few tools pro­
vide a unified framework for distributed application management. Many of the
existing tools address the management needs of a single class of applications or
services that run in a specific environment and are not extensible enough to be
used for other applications. In this paper, we discuss the design and implementa­
tion of Plush, a fully configurable application control infrastructure designed to
meet the general requirements of several different classes of distributed applica­
tions. The paper discusses how users specifically define the flow of control needed
using application building blocks provided by Plush. We also take a closer look
at a few specific distributed applications to gain an understanding of how Plush
provides support for each.
