Abstract: Any business process life-cycle should be monitored for adherence to compliance, so as to detect, analyse and recover from anomalies. Whenever a business process implemented as service-based system (SBS) deviates from compliance obligations, it is imperative to overcome anomalies so that the process is not adversely affected. This necessitates a monitoring and root-cause analysis process. Performance of the SBS is determined by factors such as goals and objectives of business layer; output data, execution time and number of services in service layer; processing load, storage capacity of the infrastructure layer. Current approaches are considered inadequate as they observe and verify adherence to properties in any one of the layers of the SBS. We propose a monitoring and root-cause analysis framework capable of congregating and correlating events from all layers of the SBS. The prototypical implementation based on event paradigm is non-invasive and introduces no overhead to the system under consideration.

Keywords: cross-layer monitoring; root-cause analysis; event-based monitoring; hierarchical service-based systems; dependencies.
