Summary

This chapter introduces the SA Forum Availability Management Framework (AMF). It looks at concepts visible through the AMF API and therefore the main concerns for application developers when integrating their design with AMF. These concepts are the component and the CSI. The AMF performs the availability management based on a model composed of logical entities that represent these two groups. It compares the main features of the different redundancy models using a simple failure scenario in a relatively simple configuration that still reflected the key points site designers would want to consider when configuring their site. The chapter looks at the information model from an administrative perspective as the model contains the status information of the AMF entities in the system and administrative operations are issued on the objects of this model representing these different entities.
