IT systems through development will increasingly become more complex, constitute huge networks, which already require monitoring systems. But it is no longer sufficient to ensure the optimum and objective function of the supervisory systems, but also has to be installed carefully designed and implemented control procedures .

Events generated in the IT systems and the event management processes have become important through development. The management and the implementation of events resulting from IT infrastructure could be based on a common model. The model to be presented is built from two popular models of infrastructure management solution (monitoring and configuration management), so the information can handle from both systems.

Completeness and correctness criteria has been created for the complex management of monitored infrastructure that implies that the system is in normal operation or not. With the mapping of the event correlation I offer a simplistic method for the supervisory systems ignoring the same event occur in the entire infrastructure.

The criteria have been designed to obtain the benefits of a classified operation through automatically supervision complying with the information technology standards. During the elaboration I studied the widely known informatics standards, recommendations and best practices (ITIL, COBIT) and the regulations of Sarbanes-Oxley.

With the validation of the criteria in design and run-time the system can be controlled and supervised through the entire design process to keep it always in accordance with the requirements of the system, and always the right element to be created. While the run-time analysis can be kept under continuous control of the system to effectively operate as planned, normally carries out the normal operation against incident occurrance.

A declarative language for formulation of criteria and an effective model-transformation and query system, I presented how to implement these criteria during the planning process continuously validated. In addition, the IncQuery tool used – the scalability features are also available, – as incremental model-controlling system can handle a huge number of model elements effectively.

The common model formulated criteria represent the added value and the model is to establish and maintain a common approach to management decision is to establish and give legitimacy to a model-based event-management systems design and operation.

The high level of supervision can be an effective advocate of high-availability and safety service systems design, and an efficient and economical operation.
