AbstractManaging long-lived computer systems containing a large number of Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) software components requires a significant investment of effort. This effort is spent on a number of activities, including adding, replacing and deleting components, integrating and customizing components, and monitoring and troubleshooting the system. Organizations can reduce the time and cost required for these system management activities and increase the usability and reliability of a system, by planning for system management during acquisition. This paper describes how organizations can use software architecture, software instrumentation, and component-based configuration management to support the ongoing system management activities.
