Monitoring has been described by Joyce et al. as "the process of dynamic collection, interpretation and presentation of information concerning objects or software processes under scrutiny" . In his book on network and system management, Sloman has later defined distributed monitoring as "the essential means for obtaining the information required about the components of a distributed system in order to make management decisions and subsequently control their behavior" .
