An Ontology-Based Expert System to Detect Service Level Agreement Violations

2018-07-04
In this paper, an expert system developed with an ontology-based approach to detect Service Level Agreement (SLA) violations is presented. The widespread use of SLAs in various areas complicates SLA management and in particular the detection of violations. Although it is necessary to automatically detect SLA violations, developing a different solution for each domain is quite costly. Several domains were investigated, and many common concepts have been identified in terms of SLAs. Nevertheless, it has been determined that each domain has its own distinct metrics and criteria. By combining familiar and changeable concepts, we have acquired the idea of creating a generic SLA ontology for different SLA domains. After generic SLA ontology was created, an expert system called SLAVIDES was developed using this ontology. The developed expert system is designed to detect SLA violations, check constraints, and make inferences. The developed system has been tested on the SLA data of the telecommunication domain. The results show that the proposed system can correctly detect SLA violations.

An Ontology-based expert system to detect service level agreement violations
Karamanlıoğlu, Alper; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Department of Computer Engineering (2017)
In this thesis, an expert system developed with an ontology-based approach to detect Service Level Agreement (SLA) violations is presented. Ontologies represent explicit formal specifications of the concepts in a particular domain and the relationships among them. Expert systems, however, are frequently employed with ontologies because of their reasoning capabilities. The widespread use of SLAs in various areas complicates SLA management and in particular the detection of violations. Although it is necessar...
Automatic QoS evaluation method for web services
Aşkaroğlu, Emra; Karagöz, Pınar (2012-07-04)
In this work, we propose a new QoS evaluation method for web services. The proposed method aims to keep track of web services in terms of QoS parameters and to generate QoS values automatically when necessary. It is realized as a part of a Web service discovery system that is a collection of domain specific service discovery nodes.
An ontology-based retrieval system using semantic indexing
KARA, Soner; ALAN, Ozgur; Sabuncu, Orkunt; Akpinar, Samet; Cicekli, Nihan K.; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur (2012-06-01)
In this paper, we present an ontology-based information extraction and retrieval system and its application in the soccer domain. In general, we deal with three issues in semantic search, namely, usability, scalability and retrieval performance. We propose a keyword-based semantic retrieval approach. The performance of the system is improved considerably using domain-specific information extraction, inferencing and rules. Scalability is achieved by adapting a semantic indexing approach and representing the ...
An extensible framework for automated network attack signature generation
Kenar, Serkan; Eren, Pekin Erhan; Department of Information Systems (2009)
The effectiveness of misuse-based intrusion detection systems (IDS) are seriously broken, with the advance of threats in terms of speed and scale. Today worms, trojans, viruses and other threats can spread all around the globe in less than thirty minutes. In order to detect these emerging threats, signatures must be generated automatically and distributed to intrusion detection systems rapidly. There are studies on automatically generating signatures for worms and attacks. However, either these systems rely...
A low-complexity precoder-decoder design in multiuser downlink MIMO communication systems for common and private information transmission Ortak ve Özel Bilginin Gönderildiǧi Çok Kullanicili ąsaǧi Baǧlantili MIMO Haberlȩsme Sistemlerinde Düsük Karmąsiklikli Bir Ön Kodlayici ve Kod Çözücü Tasarimi

In this paper, an alternative method is proposed instead of the ones using semi-definite programming (SDP) tools in precoder and decoder design to solve max-min fairness (MMF) problem in the multiuser downlink multi-input-multi-output (MIMO) communication systems for common and private information transmission. This is a Hybrid method which is the combination of the two solving total signal-interference plus noise ratio (SINR) maximization (Total-SINR Max) and total MMSE (Joint-TMSE) problems and it is very...
