This Recommendation | International Standard defines the scheduling function. The scheduling function is a systems
management function which may be used by an application process in a centralized or decentralized management
environment to exchange information and commands for the purpose of systems management, as defined by CCITT Rec.
X.700 | ISO/IEC 7498-4. This Recommendation | International Standard is positioned in the application layer of ITU-T
Rec. X.200 | ISO/IEC 7498-1 and is defined according to the model provided by ISO/IEC 9545. The role of systems
management functions is described by CCITT Rec. X.701 | ISO/IEC 10040.
This Recommendation | International Standard:
? identifies a set of requirements satisfied by the function;
? provides a model for scheduling;
? specifies the management requirements of the function and how these are realized by specification of
managed objects and their behaviour;
? defines the conformance requirements to be met by implementations of this Recommendation |
? defines managed objects.
This Recommendation | International Standard does not define:
? the manner in which management is to be accomplished by the user of the scheduling function;
? the nature of any implementation intended to provide the scheduling function;
? the nature of any interactions which result in the use of the scheduling function;
? the interactions which result by the simultaneous use of several management functions;
? the occasions where the use of the scheduling function is appropriate;
? the services necessary for the establishment, normal and abnormal release of a management association.
