Software based control mechanism to enforce operational policies and procedures required to support desired high availability targets for a computer system
Achieving High Availability in a computer system relies as much on operational procedures and practices as it does on reliable hardware and software. Higher levels of desired availability require more rigorous operational and/or system administration activities to be performed in some areas, and place increasing levels of restriction on what actions can be performed in other areas. Not all business usage models require the levels of availability that depend on these levels of restriction and process discipline at all, and in other cases it is required at certain times and not at others.
What is required is a way to set a software 'dial' to the level of availability required, and have the software enforce a set of configurable, pre-defined policies governing operational and/or system administrative activities that should be performed, and disallowing operational and/or system administrative activities that should not be performed. Examples of actions that should be performed could include taking and testing backups, performing reviews of system logs, implementing change controls, etc. Examples of actions which should be disallowed could be to disallow command line commands in favor of scripts, installation of untested or uncertified software or device drivers, etc.
The software tool would consist of a number of interfaces into a policy manager 'engine'. These would provide interfaces to :
