WS-SPAGHETTI Watch: WS-Management

Jorgen Thelin reports about WS-Management, a new spec. for managing Web Services.
A group of technology vendors that includes AMD, Dell, Intel, Microsoft and Sun Microsystems, last week published a new Web services specification designed to simplify network administration across a range of devices. Dubbed Web Services Management (WS-M), the spec describes how to use Web services as a remote management access protocol.
WS-M was originally known as WMX (Web services management extensions), and was first demonstrated at the WinHEC 2004 conference in Seattle. The spec could serve as a replacement for older standards, such as Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), according to the authoring companies.
What happens to WSDM (Web Services Distributed Management) Spec? IBM, & HP are backing WSDM.
