Network Management in Distributed Systems

Special Issue of Scalable Computing: Practice and Experience

Vol. 11 No. 4 (December 2010)


Over the last decade, we have observed the evolution of distributed computing systems in terms of their scale, complexity and networking technologies. As of today, numerous applications depend on distributed computing and networking infrastructures to operate. The management of these functionally and geographically distributed infrastructures is crucial to ensure effective operation of applications. This special issue aims at compiling the recent advancements as well as some basic issues in the fields of network management in distributed computing systems. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


- Distributed systems applications

- Network Management

- Scheduling and Queue Management

- Interconnection networks

- Traffic engineering and routing protocols

- Replication and fault tolerance

- Load distribution and management

- Performance modeling

- Security in distributed network
