The main problem with such approach is that no remote control ...
  • AutoMon. Automatic monitoring and problem detection for distributed systems 

    Wikstad, Magnus (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2016-05-15)
    When working with distributed systems, detecting faults can be a difficult task, as abnormalities isn't necessarily immediately evident by warnings or system crashes. This is especially true with subtle faults, such as variations in performance of a running program, it is not necessarily its own fault, but could rather be from a different source, somewhere in the cluster, using a lot of resources ...
