Abstract [en]

 Recently cloud computing has been gaining popularity, and the cloud infrastructures growing in size and complexity. However, the management systems have not evolved at the same pace. The tools used for management are generally limited to managing a single aspect of the underlying system. Because of this, many dierent tools, each with their own protocols, languages and data structures, are required to manage the system as a whole. This thesis addresses this problem by investigating the eectiveness, usefulness, and practicality of a single system that uses search techniques to provide all types of operational, state and conguration data in a cloud computing setting. Specically, we build from the network search project, and relate the ideas to a cloud infrastructure. Network Search takes a distributed approach to network management, using a simple data model, and a search framework to provide an easy-to-use platform for discovering network data. We begin with research into the background of the problem area, in the disciplines of cloud computing, network and systems management, information retrieval and search. Using this knowledge, a prototype search system is designed and built. Initially, the system is implemented on a single node, and the workload of the system is broken into three smaller subsystems for sensing, data storage, and query processing. A communication protocol is then implemented and the system is expanded to the full cloud infrastructure. Finally, the system is evaluated and shown to be useful to cloud search management objectives and to perform well in terms of required resources and moderately scalable depending on the types of information searched.
