Part: I JMX Introduction > Management Concepts

Chapter 1. Management Concepts

The term management is grossly overused in the computer industry. It is often the responsibility of a management system to take care of installation and configuration of a resource into a computer system. After a resource is installed, the management system should be able to start it, monitor it to be sure it is performing well, change its behavior through reconfiguration or operations, and stop it. The first thing this book is going to do is define management and the terms to describe management, and then identify the aspects of management that are addressed by Java Management Extensions (JMX)[1].

This chapter gives a short history of management systems and an overview of management architectures and technologies. Building on this basis, we will discuss the management lifecycle, resulting management disciplines, management data and operations, and then how all of these things are combined into management applications and systems.
