To support the next wave of networking technologies and services, a rich set of management functionality with various requirements and applied to heterogeneous resources will need to be deployed. This raises questions regarding the interoperability of such functionality in an environment where potentially interacting applications operate in parallel. Interactions in the management system can cause configuration instabilities and subsequently network performance degradation, especially in the presence of contradicting objectives. Detecting and handling these interactions is therefore essential. In this talk I will present an overview of the interaction management problem, a critical issue in software-based networks. I will discuss current efforts in that direction and present a new approach to manage interactions. I will also explore key challenges towards the development of a generic framework for the automated and
real-time management of these interactions.
