Abstract. The successful deploymentof next-generation distributedsys-
tems is signi cantly dependent on the e cient management support that
improves the performance and reliability of these applications at run-
time. This paper motivates and describes a programmable agents ap-
proach for active monitoring as an important attribute for supporting
scalable, highly-responsive and non-intrusive management architecture.
Active monitoring enables de ning re-con gurable and self-directed man-
agement tasks that can be modi ed automatically at run-time in order
to track the system behavior. Based on observed events and users' mon-
itoring demands, monitoring agents can dynamically customize their as-
signed tasks and initiate the appropriate monitoring actions. This avoids
