The dynamic evolution and rapid growth of networks and distributed systems present a variety of challenges with respect to the planning and operation of Management Services to meet required service levels. This paper provides an overview of the requirements, goals, methods and decisions made in performing Network and System Management. It introduces and presents the INSMware Framework that provides a fundamental basis for the planning and implementation of Integrated Network and System Management. The INSMware Framework proposes a high-level logical model in order to accommodate the range of requirements and environments applicable to Integrated Network and System Management that can be used as a reference model. The INSMware approach can be applied with the componentware paradigm for the implementation of the management system.
