Patent drawing


A monitoring mechanism is used to detect, via client side monitoring, malfunctions of services within a cloud environment. Additional monitors are activated against the problem-related services in the system. Recursively, the monitored problem-related services act as the client to other services inside the cloud environment and can be used to detect more services which need to be monitored until all the problem-related services are monitored. After the problem is fixed, the monitoring can be disabled automatically or manually.
