Moved to the Proposals for new specifications section, which was its intended home. If you use Option 1 below to indicate interest, please use its hyperlink rather than the “Reply” button on this thread.
I am wondering how much community interest there would be in forming a working group in the following topic area. This is not a formal proposal of any kind, although I used a past one to give it some basic structure. If there appears to be sufficient interest in it, then we can make a proposal to Core at some future time.
What events does an event management system contain about a computer system? Once a human decides that an event occurred “because of” some other event, or that an event “is about” a particular network device, how can another product link to details about the event?
The goal of this effort would be to define a common set of resources, properties, and RESTful services useful for answering that category of question, so that multiple tools can have a common answer when they integrate.
If you WOULD like to participate in such a working group, please do ONE of the following (most preferred action is first):
- Post a reply to this thread (the wikinfrastructure will email me, so I’ll know). Posting requires that you have a Forums ID, which is distinct from a Twiki ID as of this writing, so I’ll understand if you choose not to get yourself Yet Another ID to manage and email me instead.
