Subject: [SPAM] Re: [soa-rm-ra] definition of SLA

The following link is one description:


It lists the following pieces to the SLA:

Definition of Services
Problem Management
Performance Management
Customer Duties and Responsibilities
Warranties and Remedies
   Service quality
   Third party claims
   Remedies for breaches
   Force majeure
   Information Security Policies
   Security Audit and Internal Audit
Disaster Recovery

Several parts of the SLA can translate into policies
and configurables for services and devices.  The
policies created from the SLA can result in automated
run time adjustments to services and devices to meet
the requirements in the SLA.  A failure in ability to
meet the SLA in the SOA results in an elevation of the
problem which might have legal ramifications.

In terms of the service description, we could state
that Interactions Policies and Contracts can contain
an aggregation of one or more SLAs.  We could then
extend the SLA to include the above types of
information in a separate diagram.
