COSMOS Data Visualization Overview

The COSMOS Data Visualization framework aims to provide value by building a standards based integration infrastructure that provides access to two dimensions of the COSMOS management architecture, COSMOS Data Collection and COSMOS Resource Modeling. COSMOS Data Visualization provides a well defined set of service interface types that facilitate the exploration of the COSMOS Resource Modeling's repository of models and the retrieval of the COSMOS Data Collection's repository of state, event, and performance information.

COSMOS Data Visualization Service Architecture

The initial focus of the COSMOS Data Visualization framework is on three sets of service interface types:

  • The lowest-level service interface types deliver a structured view of the underlying data, suitable for use in reporting user interfaces of management applications.
  • The second set of service interface types is focused on integrating higher-level visualizations of the retrieved information, suitable for use in assembling portlet-based management applications.
  • The third set of service interface types is focused on light weight, web browser-based visualizations, suitable for use in assembling mashups of the available visual components.

The COSMOS Data Visualization framework will provide a comprehensive set of service interface types at each of these three levels of abstraction. Each level offers an adoption point for implementers of management applications.

The COSMOS Data Visualization framework will also provide examples of implementations of management application components that adopt of the service interface types. These are the examples:

  • Eclipse BIRT ODAs that consume the structured data views.
  • JSR-168 Portlets that consume the visualization APIs.
  • a set of buzzword-compliant, AJAX-enabled, mashup-ready user interface gadgets that allow for light-weight, browser-based integration of visualization components.


COSMOS Data Visualization and SML

The COSMOS Data Visualization framework will leverage standards implemented by COSMOS Data Collection and COSMOS Resource Modeling. The domain-specific capabilities expressed in the SML-IF resource models will be used by COSMOS Data Visualization in the assembly of componentry for exploration, visualization, and interaction with the modeled entities. The SML-IF resource models will be used to associate COSMOS Data Reporting interfaces with COSMOS Data Collection interfaces for purposes of reporting, visualization, and interaction. The SML-IF resource models will also be used to associate COSMOS Data Visualization interfaces with the COSMOS Management Enablement interfaces for the purposes of reporting, visualization, and interaction.

COSMOS Data Visualization Components


Service Interface Types

The services of the COSMOS Data Reporting Component are organized into sets of interface types, organized as adoption points for implementers of management applications. The service interface types are grouped according to the degree of abstraction they provide:

  • Service Interface Types for Structured Data Visualization
  • Service Interface Types for Graphical Visualization
  • Service Interface Types for Browser-based Visualization

Each of these sets of service interface types is explored further in the following sections.

Service Interface Types for Structured Data Visualization

This set of service interface types is organized for adoption by management application components that consume structured data, for example, tabular displays of information about modeled resources, status information, events, and performance data.

Service Interface Types for Graphical Visualization

This set of service interface types is organized for adoption by management application components that consume user interface visualizations, for example, portlet-based displays of information describing modeled resources, status information, events, and performance data. This set of service interface types will also serve the Eclipse workbench.

Service Interface Types for Browser-based Visualization

This set of service interface types is organized for adoption by management application components that consume user interface visualizations, for example, browser-based gadgets (obviously, we need to choose an AJAX-enabled quasi-standard pattern to implement!) that can be composed into mashups.
